Project Description

The project consists in technical assistance and limited investments to scale up the current production of Improved Cook Stoves (ICS) in Kenya and Senegal, ensure product quality, support marketing activities, and develop awareness to augment the adoption of ICS by households, with the aim to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from domestic cooking, an very important contributor to GHG emissions in these countries. The project also intends to generate knowledge which can be used to replicate these results to the many similar countries where cooking is an important contributor to GHG emissions.
