Mission

My name is Jualfer Paredes, I'm Peruvian. I'm developing my thesis for the Degree of Bachelor of Economics. The topic I am addressing is "Domestic Energy and Fuel: Improving the Quality of Life." In my country, especially in my town there are rural areas with very low income, low life expectancy, high rates of respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases and other indicators that are consequences of bad habits and use of kitchens with energy harmful to health of the people. This is why from this problem I promote the Improvement of Stoves in these localities. There is already a precedent in a province of my department called Ferreñafe. This aid was given by the "Sembrando" Program led by Pilar Nores, First Lady of Peru, the aid granted by MICROSOL to the town of Ancash.

I have the initiative to develop something similar in my area. I hope through my research to find funding for the prompt resolution of this serious problem within the houses of the people in this area, as the air they breathe in their own homes is equivalent to consuming two packs of cigarettes daily. I hope my research improves the socioeconomic quality of the people in my area and formalizes a program of support for them. Thanks.

Buen día, Mi nombre es Jualfer Paredes, soy peruano, estoy desarrollando mi Tesis para obtener el Grado de Licenciado en Economía. El tema que estoy abordando es "Energía y Combustible Doméstico: Mejoramiento de la calidad de Vida". En mi país en especial en mi localidad existen zonas rurales con muy bajo ingresos, baja esperanza de vida, grandes índices de Infecciones Respiratorias, Enfermedades Diarreicas y otros indicadores que son consecuencias de los malos hábitos y uso de cocinas con energía dañina para la salud de los pobladores es por eso que a partir de esta problemática estoy propiniendo el Mejoramiento de las Cocinas en estas localidades, ya existe un antecedente en una provincia de mi departamento llamado Ferreñafe esta ayuda fue propuesta por el "Programa Sembrando" de Pilar Nores, Primera Dama de mi país, la ayuda la otorgó MICROSOL para la localidad de Ancash, hoy me encuentro con la iniciativa de desarrollar algo muy parecido en mi localidad, espero que a través de mi investigación encuentre financiamiento para la pronta solución de este grave problema al interior de las casas de los pobladores ya que el aire que respiran en sus propios hogares es un equivalente al consumo de dos cajetillas diarias de cigarrillos. Espero que mi investigación mejores la calidad socioeconómica de los pobladores de mi localidad y formalizar un programa de apoyo para ellos.
Gracias

Our Focus

Primary Initiatives, Target Populations, and Scope of Work:

My initiatives are to:
Find an early solution to the problem of air pollution in my town.
Receive financial support for this research and implement it.
Reduce the rate of cases of respiratory infection in children under 5 and pregnant mothers.
Reduce the rate d cases of diarrheal diseases in children under 5 years and pregnant mothers.
Change the use of domestic fuels inside the homes of residents in my area.

The scale of the initiative is in my country Peru, in the department of Lambayeque, Ferreñafe Province, outreach and research for my project is of national interest as one of the Millennium Development Goals by 2015 is to achieve the Household Energy inside the homes of people with extreme poverty.

According to the OMS one of the 8 goals in the Energy Code is to ensure environmental sustainability, reduce use of firewood as cooking fuel by more effective methods of reducing pressure on forests. Part of this objective covers the rise to the use of improved stoves which will increase the efficiency of energy use and reduce emissions of harmful gases inside the home and thus reduce greenhouse gases, which is why the scope research and project / thesis is of national interest.

Our Experience And Interest In The Four PCIA Central Focus Areas

Social/Cultural barriers to using traditional fuels and stoves:

My social interest in obtaining clean stoves in the area of my research is to find the solution for indicators of infection and / or diseases caused by smoke inside their homes. To this we add that these people do not have the economic capacity to support the payment of a healthy cuisine, which is why I seek funding for them and improve their quality of life. That is why in the execution of my project will also need proper training to the people who benefit, and continue to monitor the people and see what effects may be experiencing in the area served.

Mi interés social en la obtención de cocinas limpias en la localidad de mi investigación se basa en encontrar la solución para indicadores de Infección y/o enfermedades causadas por el humo al interior de sus hogares a esto se añade que estos pobladores no tienen la capacidad económica para sustentar el pago de una cocina saludable, es por eso que busco el financiamiento de las mismas y así mejorar su calidad de vida. Es por eso que en la ejecución de mi proyecto será necesario también una correcta capacitación hacia los pobladores beneficiados y continuar un seguimiento en los pobladores y ver que efectos se pueden vivenciar en la localidad atendida.


Market development for improved cooking technologies:

My experience as an executor of an improved stoves program is not the best, but my experience as a student researcher about this is the best, because I am very interested in finding an early solution to the problem of my area.

Mi experiencia como ejecutor de un program de cocinas mejoradas no es la mejor, pero mi experincia como estudiante investigador a cerca de este tema sí es el mejor, pues me encuentro muy interesado en obtener la pronta solución a la problemática de mi localidad.


Technology standardization for cooking, heating and ventilation:

My experience as an executor of an improved stoves program is not the best, but my experience as a student researcher about this is the best, because I am very interested in finding an early solution to the problem of my area.

Mi experiencia como ejecutor de un program de cocinas mejoradas no es la mejor, pero mi experincia como estudiante investigador a cerca de este tema sí es el mejor, pues me encuentro muy interesado en obtener la pronta solución a la problemática de mi localidad.


Indoor air pollution exposure and health monitoring:

My social interest in obtaining clean stoves in the area of my research is to find the solution for indicators of infection and / or diseases caused by smoke inside their homes. To this we add that these people do not have the economic capacity to support the payment of a healthy cuisine, which is why I seek funding for them and improve their quality of life. That is why in the execution of my project will also need proper training to the people who benefit, and continue to monitor the people and see what effects may be experiencing in the area served. It is necessary that health should be taken as an early problem to solve, which is why I will research it as an indicator of improved quality of life.

Our Contribution to the Partnership

I hope that my research will be useful and serve as a contribution not only to obtain a Bachelor's degree in economics, but also to provide a solution to the problem of adverse health air inside the homes of residents in my area. I desire for this study to contribute to the improvement of quality of life. As part of my skills is to be dedicated, hardworking and responsible. All these I plant in my work and my personal life and more, and try to make a change in my village.
