We tackle one of the major problems facing humanity and, as always in Boiling Point, we try to provide positive ideas for improving the lives of people living in poverty. These include: ways to improve forestry resources; reducing the need for heating; increasing the efficiency of stoves and using residues to replace woodfuel. There are two excellent case studies which show how policy must be reflected in practice for initiatives to succeed. As the international community moves towards advocating fossil fuel for health improvements, another key issue addressed deals with the threats to the livelihoods of those employed in biomass provision. This edition concludes with two very human issues; the cost of using biomass in terms of health and the importance of disaggregating household energy information by gender when making decisions.
