Recognition of the problem of "indoor air pollution" (IAP) and its deleterious effects of health is growing worldwide as efforts increase to understand and articulate the complex health-air pollution linkages. Recent WHO estimates indicate that indoor smoke for solid fuels causes 1.6 million deaths annually and accounts for 2.7 percent of the global burden of disease.

A detailed account of the formal and social processes that ended years of conflict in Central America, this study analyses various aspects of conflict resolution: forms of intervention, local participation, and international co-operation. It evaluates the negotiations that took place in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua, points out their flaws, and makes recommendations to NGOs for working in conflict. It also looks at 'the bigger picture': how the end of the cold war and the consequent restructuring of the United Nations has changed how we explain and address conflict.
