This study is a collaboration between SNV and Berkeley Air Monitoring Group to improve access to clean cook stoves for impoverished communities in Cambodia that rely on solid fuels to meet household energy needs. This project also supported the development of a standardized methodology for estimating averted premature death and disability (e.g. averted Disability Adjusted Life Years or ADALYs) from…
Berkeley Air supported Winrock International to prepare and deliver capacity building workshops in Guatemala and Vietnam to train stakeholders in how to design and implement studies to assess cookstove usage patterns and household energy transitions. Displacement of polluting baseline technologies is a critical component of achieving health gains from changes in cooking technologies and fuels.
The Lao Clean Stove Initiative is part of the East Asia and Pacific Clean Stove Initiative (EAP CSI), a World Bank initiative under the Asia Sustainable and Alternative Energy program (ASTAE) to improve access to clean cooking and heating stoves for poor, primarily rural households that will continue to rely on solid fuels in the future.
The purpose of this study was to support the development of a standardized methodology for estimating averted premature death and disability (i.e. averted Disability Adjusted Life Years or aDALYs) from cookstove intervention programs in regions dependent on solid fuels for meeting their household energy needs. It took place in Lao PDR to measure health-related outcomes of improved cookstove dissemination and…
Under the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (GACC), Berkeley Air began conducting the Cookstove Emissions Performance Survey: Assessments of Promising Technologies in Priority Countries (CEPS).
Berkeley Air was funded by Agence Française de Développement (AFD) to conduct a site visit and propose the approach for an evaluation of the charcoal-burning New Lao Stove’s impact on health, environmental and economic outcomes. Berkeley Air worked in collaboration Domrei Research and Consulting to provide technical and scientific inputs.
Berkeley Air was contracted by the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air (under the auspices of the US Environmental Protection Agency) to conduct two regional technical capacity building workshops on indoor air pollution and household energy monitoring for members of the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air in Africa and Asia.
