About the publication

At the heart of MECS is the idea that we will be addressing the real needs of the 3 billion who are still cooking with biomass with all the associated problems of health, environment, climate change and livelihood burdens.

Headline figures are being used to suggest that 2 billion people have access to electricity and yet continue to cook with polluting fuels. These are very big numbers! Working with ‘2 billion’ is not going to be very nuanced. So how can we sub divide the 2 billion in a way that meaningfully affects user design?
