Overview

Deep-rooted behaviors along the spectrum of adoption, uptake and sustained use of clean stoves and fuels are a widely recognized barrier to achieving a complete and sustained transition from inefficient, polluting, traditional cooking methods to a new technology.

Three USAID TRAction (Translating Research into Action) projects were implemented to identify a set of strategies to promote behavioral change with the goal of enhancing clean cookstove acquisition and correct and consistent use.

Join TRAction and the WASHplus project to hear lessons learned from the field on which behavior change approaches were effective and which ones showed no impact; how these lessons can be used to enhance the uptake of clean stoves; and consideration of next steps to broaden and further our understanding of the potential of behavior change in the clean-cooking sector.

Please visit the TRActionproject.org for more information about the design and implementation of the three TRAction studies.
