Evaluating Sustained Adoption of Biomass Pellet Stoves in Rwanda

Research Overview

This project will study the adoption and impacts of clean cooking within the program Inyenyeri, a for-profit fuel and cookstove social venture. Inyenyeri markets the Philips gasifying stove and renewable biomass fuel pellets to consumers in western Rwanda. The program is a market driven and customer service oriented venture that recognizes the disconnect between the incentives of household decision makers and cooks.

Assessing the Impact of Water Filters and Improved Cook Stoves on Drinking Water Quality and Household Air Pollution: A Randomised Controlled Trial in Rwanda

Diarrhoea and respiratory infections remain the biggest killers of children under 5 years in developing countries. Authors conducted a 5-month household randomised controlled trial among 566 households in rural Rwanda to assess uptake, compliance and impact on environmental exposures of a combined intervention delivering high-performance water filters and improved stoves for free. Compliance was measured monthly by self-report and spot-check observations.

Rwanda

According to the 2014-2015 Demographic and Health Survey on Rwanda, the under-5 mortality rate in Rwanda was 50 deaths per 1,000 live births. Thus, 64% of all deaths among children under age 5 in Rwanda take place before a child turns one. Among the significant contributing factors to childhood morbidity and mortality in developing countries are acute respiratory infection (ARI), fever and dehydration. From 2014-2015, it was found that 6% of children under age 5 showed symptoms of Acute Respiratory Infection.
