Introduction to Integrated Development Association 
(IDEA)
IDEA established in June 1990 mainly to assist rural communities to 
address rural energy and associated issues in Sri Lanka.
Vision 
A society with affordable & sustainable energy 
options. 
Mission 
IDEA strives to promote harmony between people and the 
environment and enable all segment of the society to have a more 
control over their lives and contribute to their development.
Empowering the community to achieve sustainable development. 
Despite moderate economic growth in the country within the 
context of energy scenario it is likely that biomass will remain to 
be the major source of energy for cooking for a few more 
decades. In addition to the global concerns of climate change 
impact improvement of efficiency of traditional wood use has 
been a necessary national concern to sustain the use of local 
renewable resources.
In this context IDEA was established with a view to promote 
improved cook stove programme launched by CEB and ITDG at 
that time. The stove promoted by above organization was called 
‘Anagi’ and it has been the most popular one 
Since the inception of the cook stove programme in Sri Lanka 
about 4.0 million stoves have been marketed throughout the 
country and large number of poor families have been benefitted 
and able to get rid of poverty.
IDEA has been able to commercialise the Anagi stove programme 
successfully and make a significant contribution to poverty 
alleviation and reduction of emission of green house gases. 
In addition IDEA has introduced similar industrial stoves to 
number of cottage industries such as jaggery, and large scale 
kitchens in hotels and orphanage temple etc. in Sri lanka making 
them more energy efficient. 
IDEA has developed the capacity CBOs and NGOs across the 
country to address rural energy issues and establish network.
While focussing on stoves IDEA has under taken several studies 
on associated issues with cooking such as indoor air pollution 
introduce and implemented a very successful kitchen improvement 
programme in rural areas together with network members. 
In addition IDEA has expanded its activities into several other 
areas somas to address other rural development issues as it was 
not possible to separate those issues from energy.
The following list of project activities will give an idea about the 
widened scope. 
IDEA has been a service provider for GEF small grant programme 
in Sri Lanka so to improve the capacity of its partners.
