Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG): Demand, Supply and Future Perspectives for Sudan

Organizations: United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
Location: Sudan
Type: Trainings & Workshops
Keywords: Fuel Wood, Fuel-Efficient Stove

This document summarizes the proceedings of a workshop entitled "Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG): Demand, Supply and Future Perspectives for Sudan," which was held in Khartoum on 12-13 December 2010. The workshop was hosted by the Ministry of Petroleum under a joint initiative led by the Ministry of Environment, Forestry and Physical Development (MEFPD). The workshop brought together a diverse group of stakeholders to explore the use of LPG as an alternative source of energy to displace the reliance on wood fuel in Sudan. It therefore reflects a number of different concerns relating to the use of LPG including: the replacement of demand for energy from woodfuel – to reduce the rate of deforestation in Sudan; poverty alleviation – particularly with reference to how microfinance for LPG can enable poor communities to access fuel; and health – to reduce the impacts on health from indoor air pollution. This publication contains a compilation of the working papers presented during the workshop and is preceded by a joint statement that was drafted during the workshop.
