Article
To limit global temperature increases to ‘well below 2 ºC’, it is necessary that current national commitments to reduce emissions are increased, and these commitments are implemented. The identification of local development benefits from climate change mitigation is a possible motivating factor to achieve this. However, there is a lack of practical...
Article
In this study, we tested a natural draft gasifier, currently implemented in Senegal and the traditional three stones fire (TSF) in the laboratory, using the protocol of water boiling test (WBT). Pollutants emissions from three types of biomass full were investigated in this work. Our results show that, burning the same wood (Cordyla Pinnata, dimb),...
Article
Three billion people (>40% of the world's population) lack access to clean cooking solutions, including 2.5 billion people that still rely on the traditional use of biomass for cooking. In urban contexts, the rate of access to clean cooking solutions is normally higher than in rural contexts due to greater availability of these solutions. The relev...

O uso de fogão a lenha é comum no Semiárido brasileiro, porém a maioria das famílias usa fogões tradicionais, que trazem um conjunto de impactos sociais, ambientais e relacionados à saúde. Fogões melhorados é o nome dado aos fogões mais limpos e eficientes que os fogões tradicionais de lenha. Eles incluem adaptações que melhoram a eficiência energ...
Article
Wood cookstoves are common in the Brazilian semiarid region. Most families use traditional versions,which have a series of social, environmental and health-related impacts. “Improved cookstoves” referto cleaner and more efficient cookstoves. These include adaptations that improve energy efficiency and reduce indoor air pollution, bringing benefits...
Article
Sustainable development challenges are increasingly concentrated in urban areas. In the European Union (EU), cities are expanding their urban green infrastructure (UGI) to reduce the effects of climate change and enhance resilience and sustainability. However, there exist few articles showing local case studies in intermediate cities of Europe. The...
Conference Paper

En ciudades en las que prima el sector servicios, donde las rentas suelen ser medio-altas, las acciones asociadas al consumo tienen un mayor impacto sobre el cambio climático que aquéllas asociadas a la producción de bienes tangibles. Esto confiere a las decisiones individuales un gran poder transformador. En los últimos años se ha multiplicado la...
Article

Although indoor air pollution from the use of biomass fuels is a serious health problem in Senegal, little effort has been made in this country to evaluate indoor air quality impacts from biomass combustion with traditional stoves and indoor air quality improvements derived from the use of improved cookstoves. A cross-sectional study was conducted...
Article
Full-text available
In some regions of the world, cooking with solid biomass fuels in open fires constitutes the largest source of elemental and organic carbon emissions. However, cooking-related carbonaceous aerosols are still poorly characterized. This paper presents an innovative characterization of elemental and organic carbon (EC and OC) emissions from cookstoves...
Article
Black carbon is the second largest contributor to climate change and also poses risks to human health. Despite the need for black carbon (BC) emissions estimates from residential biomass burning for cooking, quantitative data are still scarce. This scarcity is mainly due to the scattered location of the stoves, as well as relatively costly and comp...

•O documento “Opções de intervenção no Setor dos Fogões Melhorados no Semiárido Brasileiro” tem como base o “Estado do Setor de Fogões Melhorados no Semiárido Brasileiro”. •Os dois documentos foram realizados de forma conjunta pelo Instituto Brasileiro de Desenvolvimento e Sustentabilidade (IABS), pelo Centro de Innovación en Tecnología para el Des...
Article
In recent years, the concept of sustainable development (SD) has become increasingly recognized and important. Within organizations, SD is often portrayed as a balancing act and requires a combination of three elements to be considered: economy, environment, and society. Traditionally, organizational management research has been focused on economic...
