Identifying, testing, piloting, and disseminating mitigation technologies and other solutions to reduce emissions from key sectors, including cooking, brick making, agricultural burning, and transport

  • Assessment of factors behind increased burning of agricultural residue, and potential mitigation options for this practice

  • Extensive emission and energy measurement of different indoor cook stoves was conducted, evaluating the adoption and performance of improved biomass stoves. This measurement was also conducted in 27 brick kilns across Nepal – among the largest measurement campaigns in South Asia. Various kiln structures and firing practices were studied, and stack emission for specific pollutants as well as energy consumption patterns were measured.
