5.4.1 Air Quality in Kampala

Course subject(s) Module 5 – Energy & Air 2: Citizens Co-Creating Cleaner Air

Charcoal Cooking in Kampala

Now, we come to the second part of this module on air quality and energy. We switch from Amsterdam to a very different context: the slum areas of Kampala, where we will focus on the practice of charcoal cooking. Charcoal cooking strongly pollutes the air and causes adverse health effects. It is widely practiced in Sub-Saharan cities like Kampala, and is the only way to cook for many people living in these city slum areas. In the following video, dr. Bas van Vliet from Wageningen University will give an introduction to charcoal cooking and how it is presented in this section.
