Consumer Awareness of Cookstove Technology and Fuel Performance

This session will provide examples of programs from the cookstoves, fuels, and other sectors that are piloting ways to increase consumer understanding of different technology and fuel options, including their performance.  These examples provide lessons learned about how to evaluate users’ understanding of labels, implement policies, raise consumer awareness about technology options. The goal of the discussion will be to get recommendations on when labeling and consumer awareness is most valuable.
