IAUNRC Graduate Student Brown Bag: Alyssa Meyer

Assessing the Impact of Energy Access on Daily Life in Kyrgyzstan
Location: GISB 3067
Time: November 9, Wednesday at 12 pm

“This presentation is an abridged version of my Master’s thesis, which is attempting to measure the impact of Kyrgyzstan’s energy crisis on living conditions. While the causes of Kyrgyzstan’s energy insecurity are well understood, its impact on the population has not yet been extensively studied. The data encompasses energy journals collected from September 2015-June 2016 from 37 households located across all seven regions (oblasts) of Kyrgyzstan, in which participants have reported daily the presence or absence of various energy sources in their home.”
