Solar Cookers Reduce Burden on Local Environment in Rural Tajikistan

    1. Both solar and wood seem to not see much use in comparison with biomass, both from the quick google search I did and from my personal experience. In more rural areas biomass (wood, leaves, peat, etc.) seems more common, I urban areas there is a mix. Here in China, coal is a common cooking fuel in cities as well. Refueling and transportation costs seem like the main obstacles to widespread use, as per the UN resource below.
