This research project is designed to explore the status of indoor and ambient air pollutions emanating from household consumptions of various kinds of fuel for cooking, heating and lighting in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. The research seeks to determine the types of fuel used by different households for cooking and the factors (socio-economic, environmental and demographic) which influence the choice of fuel consumed. The relationship between the types and quantities of fuel used for cooking and the indoor and ambient air qualities were critically evaluated. Quantitative data were collected using well-structured questionnaire administered to randomly selected households in the study area using the lists of enumeration areas as sampling frame. Means, frequencies, percentages and charts were used in data presentation and analysis. The findings of the study will help to create awareness on the consequences of continued exposure to hazardous pollutants and alternative energy sources forsafer household consumption and cleaner, healthier environment.
