Laboratory and field testing is necessary to evaluate, communicate, and improve performance and quality of cookstoves and fuels, and thus improve adoptions. The latest stove and fuel testing methods and results will be presented along with a discussion of how laboratory testing compares across different organizations, methods, stove types, fuel types, and geographies. This discussion will have impacts on the development and national-level implementation standards for evaluating cookstove performance and will be relevant to a broad, non-technical audience.
