PCIA Bulletin Issue #17
Partners in Clean Indoor Air, November 6, 2008

Dear PCIA Partners,

We have published the 17th issue of the PCIA Bulletin!

The Bulletin provides information on the activities of the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air (PCIA) and its Partners around the world, and is intended to increase awareness and action on indoor air pollution, household energy and health. Regular features include spotlights on PCIA Partners, feature articles based on a thematic focus, and recent achievements and advances in household energy, indoor air pollution, and health.

The17th issue focuses on strategies and experiences of PCIA Partners in gaining media attention for the field of household energy, indoor air pollution and health, and their individual programs. This issue contains a collection of spotlight and feature articles on: PRSP environmental branding activities in the Gambia; BAQ media events; IDER strategies for working with the media; and Approtech Asia program and media experiences. In addition, we highlight recent PCIA events in Dakar, Senegal and Washington, DC, and new research by GTZ/HERA in Malawi and AEPC/ESAP in Nepal. As always, this issue of the Bulletin also contains information on upcoming events related to household energy, indoor air pollution and health.

We hope the PCIA Bulletin will be an important source of information for PCIA Partners and others working to improve the lives of millions of women and children worldwide. We encourage you to submit updates on your work, announcements of new resources of interest to this community, and feedback on what information would be most useful and interesting for you to receive through the Bulletin.

The last submission date for Issue 18 is November 30, 2008. The theme will be PCIA Partner progress since the 2007 PCIA Forum. For detailed information on the topics highlighted in the Bulletin or to view previous issues of the Bulletin, please visit www.pciaonline.org/bulletin.
