USAID|TRAction recently sponsored a special issue of the Journal of Health Communication: International Perspectives. The supplement "Advancing Communication and Behavior Change Strategies for Cleaner Cooking” focuses on the role of behavior change strategies within the clean cooking sector.

It is increasingly recognized that achieving the adoption and sustained and correct use of clean cooking technologies will not be achieved without a significant shift in behavior at all stages of the clean cooking value chain. This special issue aims to advance our understanding of behavior change related to the clean cooking technology, the enabling environment, and demand creation. Lessons are intended to inform household energy policy and program strategies.

Prior to publication of this special issue, TRAction hosted a roundtable meeting to bring together the authors and the guest editorial board to discuss and develop the presented work. Links to the presentations given at this round table meeting are provided below alongside the corresponding final published articles.During this roundtable meeting the guest editors shared their thoughts and comments on behavior change in the clean cooking sector. Click here to listen to these interviews presented in a video called ‘ Household Air Pollution: What's Behavior Got To Do With It?’.

The findings and lessons learned from the Journal of Health Communication special issue were presented in two panel discussions hosted by the USAID| TRAction project and the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.The first of these Behavior Change for Clean Cooking’ panels took place in Washington, DC at the National Press Club on April 21, 2015. The press release from this event can be accessed here. The second panel was part of a the larger cookstove adoption workshop ‘“Beyond Distribution: Ensuring and Evaluating the Adoption of Clean Cooking and its Benefits’ which took place in Lima, Peru on May 4, 2015.
