Villages selected for HH questionnaire

August 2, 2010

A questionnaire will be deployed over the next couple of months to households (HHs) in two areas within Siem Reap district – Chireve village, and Prasat Char. The areas chosen are known to the research team, and informal appraisal indicates that they represent two differing socio-economic status’.

This general questionnaire will cover current stove technologies and use and fuel availabilities, in addition to land holdings and farming methods relevant to soil management for the respondent. This will gather information to assess the potential for a biochar producing stove to fit in with one of these situations. A randomised method will be used to select participating HHs.

The same questionnaire will be used for the Indian field work.
