Women are the primary producers of processed fish in Casamance, Senegal, providing a steady income to women-headed households and saving tonnes of fish from being wasted. However, Bineta Mané, President of the Women’s Union of Fish Processors, explains that most women use inefficient wood-burning stoves that encourage the exploitation of local forests while producing smoke linked to heart disease. After switching to more efficient stoves, the women’s collective is seeing twin environmental and economic benefits of these new processing technologies. Photo credit: UN Women Senegal
