Clean Cooking and Behavior Change in Africa: Lessons Learned to Date
The Clean Cooking Alliance (Alliance) and the Clean Cooking Association of Kenya (CCAK) will host a one-day interactive, lessons-sharing workshop on clean cooking and behavior change in Africa. The Alliance and partners have tested several behavior change approaches and techniques in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and Uganda to stimulate uptake and continued use of clean cooking solutions. The workshop will allow an opportunity for participants to share and discuss results, lessons learned, and recommendations from those efforts. It will also allow an opportunity to reflect on which approaches were most effective, and how future behavior change interventions in the clean cooking sector can be optimized based on these learnings.
The all-day workshop will be held at the Safari Park Hotel on Friday, February 22, 2019.
The workshop will be part of the first-ever Africa Social and Behavior Change (ASBC) conference hosted by Population Services Kenya (PS-K) – an affiliate of PSI – from February 19-21. The ASBC conference seeks to bring together practitioners, academics, researchers, policymakers, students, development partners, and other institutions across different sectors that utilize Social & Behavior Change (SBC) to showcase theory, effective programs, approaches, and lessons learnt within the African context.
