Beyond Distribution: Ensuring and Evaluating the Adoption of Clean Cooking and Its Benefits
Adoption Workshop: The purpose of the workshop was to engage key stakeholders to determine how to move from distribution to adoption of clean cooking technologies, how to define adoption and measure progress towards it. Over 75 stakeholders from implementing agencies, carbon project developers, government ministries, NGOs, international organizations, evaluators, and research/academia worked together to determine how to move beyond a focus on distribution towards defining and measuring progress on adoption of clean cooking technologies. Workshop sessions shared the results of recent adoption studies, highlighted recently published evidence on the role of behavior change communication (BCC) and gender in enabling. The workshop also included intensive working sessions focused on defining adoption and developing a practical framework for implementers to measure and evaluate the range of potential benefits that can be achieved through adoption of clean cooking solutions.
The two-day workshop on adoption of clean cooking in Lima, Peru (May 4th and 5th, 2015) was co-organized by the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia (UPCH), the USAID Translating Research into Action (TRAction) Project and the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH)
