Energy experts meet in Arusha on 10 November to discuss ways to encourage the use of briquettes to substitute charcoal and wood fuel, used widely in cooking throughout Sub-Sahara Africa.

The six-day conference at Olasiti Garden Lodge is sponsored by the Legacy Foundation of Oregon with funding from the McKnight Foundation in Minnesota. Participants are from Uganda, Kenya, Chad, Botswana, South Africa and Burkina Faso.

The Legacy Foundation provides training for biomass briquette production and environmental conservation to promote sustainable human development worldwide. It also develops solar systems, water pump technology, wind energy and transport system for rural environments.
