This support includes: socio-economic impact evaluation, indoor air pollution measure, fuel characterization, calculation of GHG emission reduction, market assessment and cost-benefit analysis.
ItdUPM performs studies and analysis of different key aspects in cookstoves programs: socio-economic impact evaluation, indoor air pollution measure, fuel characterization, calculation of GHG emission reduction, market assessment and cost-benefit analysis.
Through these studies (both field and research work) we contribute to ensure sustainability and to research on understanding the main barriers and opportunities that face improved cookstoves programs.
