ASHES (Advancing Sustainable Household Energy Solutions) is excited to host the fourth webinar in the Science to Achieve Results series. An inspiring panel of woman scientists will discuss work funded by the Environmental Protection Agency on how to model and map the global climate impacts of cooking and heating with solid fuels.

ASHES is a collaboration seeking to increase the awareness, capacity and the number of individuals/organizations providing technical expertise and support in the transition to clean and efficient household energy systems. Exposure to household air pollution (HAP) is a top-ten risk factor for morbidity and mortality worldwide, and is a leading contributor to the burden of disease around the world. Access to modern energy has been proposed as a basic human right, yet 3 billion people still rely on traditional energy sources (e.g., wood, charcoal, kerosene) to support household needs such as cooking, heating, and lighting. Emissions from traditional energy sources create unhealthy levels of HAP and contribute to the earth’s radiative energy balance; over the next century, anthropogenic climate forcing is expected to inflict a major toll on human health. We seek to help shift the current household energy paradigm to increasingly efficient and sustainable solutions.
