Identifying behavioural drivers of cookstove use: a household study in Kibera, Nairobi

This paper presents findings from the first phase of an ongoing case study to identify some key influences on behaviour related to energy use and the uptake of alternative clean cookstoves in households in Kibera, the largest informal settlement in Nairobi. The myriad negative impacts of relying on traditional biomass for cooking have been well documented. Although governments, international donors and private companies have made numerous attempts over the years to address this problem, little progress has been made.
