Mobilizing Cooking Technologies for Development: An Analysis of Climate Policy


Cooking Technologies Development

GREGORY SIMON

This research assesses how rural household cooking technologies in western India (and around the developing world more generally) are mobilized by institutions to advance various social and environmental initiatives. Currently I am focusing on how these technologies are integrated within climate change policies. Specifically, this research examines carbon-offset programs aiming to replace traditional stoves with cleaner burning (low soot) varieties. Along with calling for increased attention to indoor environments as active political ecological spaces, this research also underscores the crucial role of development intermediaries in shaping how development unfolds between individuals and institutions operating at various scales.
