Our Experience And Interest In The Four PCIA Central Focus Areas

Social/Cultural barriers to using traditional fuels and stoves:

1. We are targeting rural communities for clean fuel options
2. We are aiming to improve the livelihoods of the rural communities by opting for a clean fuel which in turn deals with waste
3. Our model will be based on mentorship & facilitation for a sustainable livelihood to the rural communities
4. We aim to develop a CDM project by evaluation, improvement, replication & expansion at the country level

Market development for improved cooking technologies:

Market development for us will be to target the local community by mentoring them & facilitating the installation & maintenance of fuel technologies by local procurement.

Technology standardization for cooking, heating and ventilation:

We are aiming at using the same technology although with different approaches depending upon the cultural & religious inclination of the target community.

Indoor air pollution exposure and health monitoring:

Our monitoring plan is under development.
