Source of cooking fuel

Firewood was the major source of fuel for cooking for households as shown in Table 3.10. The 2002 census showed that 81 percent of the household used firewood for cooking, while 15 percent used charcoal. More firewood is used in rural areas at 91 percent whereas charcoal is the popular choice among urban dwellers at 52 percent. The percentage of households that did not use wood fuel for cooking was only 4.2 percent implying that the level of deforestation was too high hence a need to sensitize the population on importance of tree planting.
