Mission to Darfur (in Bldg. 50)

Speaker(s): 
Date: 
January 26, 2006 - 12:00pm
Location: 
LBNL Bldg. 50 Auditorium

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.
