Alice Karanja conducted fieldwork in the Kiambu and Morang'a districts of Kenya in August-September 2017. She collected information about the factors that affect the adoption and sustained use of clean and energy-efficient cookstoves such as biogas and improved biomass stoves, as well as their environmental and socioeconomic impacts.
The study was undertaken along two transects in Kiambu and Murang’a County around Nairobi. In total 600 households were interviewed through extensive household surveys and a choice experiment. Qualitative information was collected through focus group discussions and ethographic approaches through extended visits in some of the surveyed households.
