Food Matters 'Table Talk' podcast interviewing MECS experts on 'How can enabling “clean cooking” save millions of lives?'

30th October 2020

1.8 billion people have access to electricity but still cook with biomass. Four million people die each year from Household Air Pollution.  “Clean cooking” means cooking using non-polluting fuels.  The Modern Energy Cooking Services (MECS) programme aims to rapidly accelerate the transition from biomass to clean cooking on a global scale.

To understand the problem, and what they are doing to facilitate change, Food Matters team produced a ‘Table Talk’ podcast, interviewing four experts from the programme, Prof Ed Brown, Nick Rousseau and Anh Tran from Loughborough University and Simon Batchelor Director of Gamos Ltd.

In addition to the panel discussion, interviews were conducted with some of our partners in Kenya so you can hear their perspective on the work and why it is exciting the interest of both cooks and utility companies.
