Correlations related to fuel usage patterns in rural Kenya : A comparison of local surveys to facilitate future local sustainable fuel actions.

University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

Abstract: Human activities affect the climate. If the utilization of fossil and other hazardous fuel methods is eliminated, it would reduce the impact on climate change. By investigating fuel usage patterns in three rural areas of Kenya, looking at social, economic and ecological factors, a foundation to facilitate future local actions towards sustainable fuel consumption can be made. With the help of local surveys performed in Siaya, Kwale and Embu, correlations could be found. The data was not extensive enough to generate general conclusions but can act as a beginning to a foundation for future sustainable actions. More data should be retrieved and investigated regarding methods and local conditions included in this project to work as a well-rounded foundation for future local actions regarding fuel methods and practices.
