This study was conducted to investigate the opportunities for upscaling sustainable local-made technologies for more comfort and better hygiene conditions in rural areas. The results are relevant for decision and policy makers, local administration and stakeholders.

The EuropeAid funded project “Home Comforts” has demonstrated solutions how to find affordable and sustainable ways towards improved living conditions in rural areas of Kyrgyzstan.  This study gives information about the technologies, how they were implemented and accepted, assesses their costs and benefits and discusses what are the potentials for further upscaling.
