Kazakhstan/Kyrgyzstan – Kazakhstan and the Kyrgyz Republic need more than energy access to promote clean fuels (Dina Azhgaliyeva, Ranjeeta Mishra and Kamalbek Karymshakov, ADBI)

Air pollution in the cold countries of Central Asia is particularly high during winter due to the consumption of solid fuels for space heating. Evidence-based policy recommendations are needed to facilitate the transition from solid fuel consumption to the use of cleaner fuels for residential heating and cooking, particularly in Kazakhstan and the Kyrgyz Republic. This is important not only for improving health conditions for the inhabitants and visitors in these countries but also for reducing the life-threatening health hazards arising from indoor cooking and heating.
