Uganda: Evaluation of Behavior Change Interventions

This project was funded by USAID under the Translating Research into Action (TRAction) agreement through prime recipient University Research Co., LLC (URC) in order to develop, test, and evaluate behavior change interventions to improve the uptake and correct use of the locally produced Top-Lit Updraft (TLUD) stove in Uganda. Uptake and proper use of the TLUD could make substantial impacts on health and climate. This project builds upon Berkeley Air’s baseline indoor air pollution research on the TLUD stove as a part of the World Bank Biomass Energy Initiative for Africa (BEIA) project in Uganda. Berkeley Air supported the Seattle-based international non-profit PATH in implementing the project.
