Using Stove Emissions Data to Estimate Air Quality:

An overview of World Health Organization current modeling approaches and future plans

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

11:00 AM - 12:30 PM EDT / 8:00 AM – 9:30 AM PDT

This webinar will provide background on how stove emissions can be related to concentrations of indoor air quality and vice versa. The modeling approach to be described is the same as that used for the development of the emissions guidance in the International Workshop Agreement 11:2012: Guidelines for evaluating cookstove performance; and the WHO Guidelines for Indoor Air Quality: Household Fuel Combustion.

In addition to describing how the model can be used to estimate air quality or derive emissions targets, the presentation will include background on the WHO’s work on providing guidance in the household energy sector and planned future activities.  These future activities include expanding the model’s capabilities (e.g., accounting for stove stacking), as well as providing an interactive web version of the model for which regionally-based data can be input for more relevant local application. The webinar will conclude with a discussion on policy implications, and the interpretation and application of performance targets.   

Webinar speakers include:

Heather Adair-Rohani, Technical Officer, Department of Public Health, Environmental and Social Determinants of Health, World Health Organization

Nigel Bruce, Professor of Public Health, Department of Public Health and Policy, University of Liverpool; Consultant, World Health Organization

Michael Johnson, Senior Scientist, Berkeley Air Monitoring Group
