We are pleased to invite your research contributions to a new Special Issue focused on Household Cooking and Space Heating: Effects on Air Pollution, Climate Change, and Human Health. Cooking is a daily activity that is done with a wide variety of fuels across the planet. Some 40% of the world’s population continues to cook with solid fuels, often in situations that create high levels of air pollution. Household space heating is also commonly accomplished by burning solid fuels in countries across the socioeconomic spectrum. The air pollution produced by household cooking and heating is of concern because of its impacts on human health and on environmental quality. These impacts have large economic impacts both for households and countries. Many aspects of these impacts remain poorly understood.
For this special issue, we are particularly interested in papers that address trends in household fuel use for cooking and/or heating; report new information or data on household fuel use; describe new methods for assessing air pollution (and human exposures) associated with household fuel use; investigate the impacts of household energy use on ambient conditions; and/or probe the climate change impacts of household fuel use. Solutions-oriented projects are also of interest, as are policy analyses related to household cooking and heating.
We look forward to your submissions.
