A two hour in-person and online discussion, video demonstration and Q&A about the pollution issues faced by women and children while cooking in their kitchens in low-income countries.
In low-income countries, the use of solid fuels for cooking is still widespread. Whether it's using wood, coal, dung, or biomass these fuels result in severe levels of indoor air pollution from the smoke produced. The lack of availability of non-polluting alternatives means that the low priced traditional stoves or open fires are often the only choice for poor families. Join Warwick Business School's Dr Giorgia Barboni and guests including Dr Dan Sweeney (MIT D-Lab); Dr Om Kurmi (Coventry University); Dr Kirsten Campbell (Modern Energy Cooking Services, MECS); Ankit Mathur (Greenway) as they discuss and demonstrate indoor air pollution from cooking and its effects on women and children.
