Practical Action Nepal and Indoor Air Pollution & Health Forum Nepal are going to organize a "South Asia Regional Workshop on Indoor Air Pollution, Health and Household Energy" on 27-28 February 2006 in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Excessive use of biomass fuel in poorly ventilated kitchen and inefficient stoves for cooking and room heating leading to high level of indoor air pollution and associated health hazards is common in South Asia. In the context, Practical Action Nepal and Indoor Air Pollution and Health Forum Nepal are going to organize a "South Asia Regional Workshop on Indoor Air Pollution, Health and Household Energy" from 27-28 February 2006 in Kathmandu, Nepal. The workshop aims to discuss on the existing policy provisions and best practices in South Asia. In addition, the workshop aims to identify gaps and draw out possible ways to incorporate and build on them so that indoor smoke problem is mitigated from policy level throughout the region. Specific objectives include:

  1. analysing policy gaps and generating recommendations;
  2. exchanging information on best practices, successful technologies and models and challenges;
  3. sharing on indoor smoke and associated health burdens;
  4. sharing about the expansion of knowledge on indoor air sciences and technologies;
  5. strengthening commitments of stakeholders to address the issues and implement mitigating measures; and
  6. building linkages within and between various fields such as engineering, medicine, architecture as well as social sciences

Organizations and individuals from South Asian countries can participate in the workshop.
