Household Air Pollution Implementation Research: Evaluating Sustained Adoption of Clean Cookstoves and Fuels

The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (the Alliance) and the USAID|TRAction Project have jointly released a Request For Applications (RFA) on ‘Evaluating Sustained Adoption of Clean Cookstoves and Fuels’. This joint call seeks proposals to study the motivators and barriers to sustained adoption of clean cooking technologies. It is expected that this implementation research will be nested within and designed around clean cooking distribution programs that are already in progress, especially market-based or humanitarian approaches to scaling up access to clean cooking.

The research is intended to identify key determinants influencing the sustained correct, consistent, and exclusive use of clean cooking technologies (demonstrably clean cookstoves and/or fuels) in order to inform future implementation efforts aiming to reduce household air pollution and ultimately decrease the burden of disease in women and children. TRAction and the Alliance anticipate making up to 4 awards of approximately USD 200,000-300,000 each to achieve the goals described in this solicitation. The findings will inform a theory of change, through which the identified determinants of clean cooking adoption are built into an evidence-based implementation framework that can guide future efforts to reduce HAP exposure. The research will help to inform future investments in the mitigation of household air pollution.
