Partnership for Clean Indoor Air The Challenge Almost 3 billion people burn solid fuels indoors for home cooking and heating. More than 1.5 million people, mainly women and children, die prematurely each year from breathing elevated levels of indoor smoke.
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air The Health Impact 50% of the world’s population relies on solid fuels for their cooking and heating needs. Indoor air pollution is the 4 th worst risk factor (behind malnutrition, unsafe sex, and lack of clean water and adequate sanitation) source: Fuel for Life report, WHO 2006.
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air About the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Launched at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002. Now, more than 170 public and private organizations working in 70 countries. Already, key Partners have reported helping 1.4 million households adopt clean cooking and heating practices, reducing harmful exposures for more than 7.6 million people.
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air PCIA’s Mission Improve health, livelihood, and quality of life through reduced exposure to indoor air pollution, primarily among women and children, from household energy use in developing countries.
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air PCIA’s Goal Increase the use of clean, reliable, affordable, efficient, and safe home cooking and heating practices that reduce exposure to indoor air pollution.
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Essential Elements of Sustainable Programs Meet social and behavioral needs. Develop sustainable, local markets. Meet design/performance criteria. Monitor impacts of intervention.
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Current Partnership Activities Strengthening exchanges and networks o Partner meetings, Example: 3 rd Biennial Partnership Forum, March 2007 »110 participants from 22 countries »Documented Results To Date »Celebrated Results -- Called Attention to Effective Programs »Committed to Actions to Achieve Bold Future Results
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Current Partnership Activities Knowledge Management: o Partnership Web site: www.PCIAonline.org o Quarterly Bulletin o PCIA Design Principles for Wood Burning Cook Stoves Capacity Building & Technical Assistance: o Stove design and performance workshops o Regional monitoring & evaluation workshops o Commercialization workshops o Technology testing
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Stove testing in emissions hoodContinuous emission monitors USEPA Stove Performance Testing
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Identified Needs Develop voluntary stove performance standards to: Define an “improved” stove for project implementers, funders, consumers, governments, carbon organizations Objective evaluation of technologies leading to certification against a quality standard Understand and transfer design features Promote innovation Quantify performance (CO, PM and GHG emissions, fuel use/efficiency, and safety)
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Project Implementation Partners funding pilot projects throughout the world (Africa, Asia, Latin America). Sharing lessons learned. Replicating projects that promote improved cooking/heating practices that are more efficient, meet users’ needs, reduce exposures, and can be produced locally. Scaling-up effective approaches.
Initial USG Pilot Project Results 1.3 million households educated about IAP 70,000 homes using cleaner & more fuel- efficient practices 350,000 people with reduced exposure to indoor smoke 700 new small businesses producing and marketing improved fuels/technologies 12 clean household fuels and technologies tested, improved and marketed
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Conclusions CCF have significant health, social, economic and environmental benefits. Globally, contribute to achieving the MDGs to reduce child mortality, improve maternal health, eradicate poverty, promote gender equality, and ensure environmental sustainability. Formation of PCIA resulted in greater visibility and support, increased networking, leveraging of expertise and resources, and meeting needs/gaps.
Partnership for Clean Indoor Air Opportunities for Involvement Visit the PCIA website to learn more and join (www.PCIAonline.org)www.PCIAonline.org Share lessons learned and best practices. Utilize PCIA protocols and guidance. Participating in regional capacity building workshops and international Forum -- 4 th Biennial PCIA Forum in Kampala, Uganda March 2009
