Post-Forum Session: Translating Research to Policy – Kenya Edition
This post-Forum session will invite policymakers, researchers, project implementers, companies, and other clean cooking stakeholders to discuss the findings from recent and ongoing research conducted in Kenya and to discover how these findings can (and cannot) be translated into national clean cooking-enabling policies. The research will include a pilot study on the feasibility of Mimi Moto stoves in peri-urban communities outside of Nairobi conducted by Stockholm Environment Institute; a city-level cost-benefit analysis conducted in Nairobi by Duke University; and an emission to exposure study to be conducted in Eldoret by Berkeley Air Monitoring Group that seeks to quantify the health impacts of traditional cooking. The discussion will focus on the policy implications and lessons learned from the research and the evidence-informed actions policymakers can take to enable a transition to clean cooking in Kenya. The session will include presentations of research and a moderated discussion.
