This quarterly newsletter reports on the activities of the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air (PCIA) and its Partners to improve health, livelihood and quality of life by reducing exposure to indoor air pollution, primarily among women and children, from household energy use. Currently, 450 Partner organizations are working together to increase the use of affordable, reliable, clean, efficient and safe home cooking and heating practices.

This issue focuses on the use of liquefield petroleum gas (LPG) as a clean, transportable cooking fuel alternative. PCIA Partners from Latin America, Africa and Asia have successfully implemented programs encouraging LPG use, even in remote communities where other types of clean fuel are not readily accessible. In Bulletin 26 these organizations share their project implementation experiences and discuss cultural adoption sensitivities, as well as affordability obstacles, they encountered during the process.
