Mission to Darfur (in room 90-4133)

Speaker(s): 
Date: 
December 13, 2005 - 12:00pm
Location: 
Bldg. 90

We describe preliminary findings from our recent field trip to Darfur, Sudan, where we aimed to introduce fuel efficient stoves to the internally displaced persons (IDPs) camped there.  There are 2 million IDPs in Darfur refugee camps, with another 200,000 across the border in Chad.   We visited two camps in South Darfur, Otash and Kalma  -- the latter is the largest camp in the world housing more than 100,000 refugees.   With our improved stoves we demonstrated fuelwood savings of about 50%.   The talk will describe the background and the goals of this visit and our technical and field impressions along with illustrative slides.
