Elisa Derby, Lutfiyah Ahmed, Partnership for Clean Indoor Air
We have published the 10th issue of the PCIA Bulletin! (See Attached)
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 will 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.
The10th issue focuses on Technology, and the influence that awareness of indoor air pollution (IAP) has on design considerations. This issue contains a collection of feature articles on: IAP reduction efforts in Tanzania; a large residential building and construction program designed to improve health and livelihoods in Pakistan; and dissemination of improved cookstoves in Brazil. In addition, we highlight two technology developments currently being field tested, one in the Philippines and the other in Nicaragua and India.
As always, the bulletin contains information on upcoming events and new resources in 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 11 is February 15, 2006. Please note that the theme for Issue 11 will be Household Energy and Humanitarian Assistance. For detailed information on the topics highlighted in the Bulletin or to view previous issues of the Bulletin, please visit www.PCIAonline.org.
