Ghana: Indoor Air Pollution Monitoring of Gyapa Wood Stove

Berkeley Air partnered with EnterpriseWorks-Ghana to document the impact of the Gyapa wood stove on indoor air quality in households in Accra, Ghana compared to traditional cooking stoves.

Kitchen concentrations of PM2.5 and CO were monitored in a before and after study design. Baseline (‘before’) measurements were made in households using a traditional stove or open fire. ‘After’ measurements were performed in the same households once the improved stove had been introduced.
