Blog » ESMAP BBL | Do Quality Efficient Biomass Stoves Sell? Lessons Learned from Uganda | Monday, November 5, 2018| 12:00pm- 1:30pm | Room I 6-054
In order to create a sustainable efficient and clean cooking market, there is an increased emphasis on the support to the private sector development including results-based financing and support on value chain integration on the supply side.
Following this approach, the Uganda Clean Cooking Supply Chain Expansion project has engaged and incentivized a number of international-local manufacturer-distributor consortia to bring 4 new quality efficient biomass cookstoves to the Ugandan market.
But, do they actually sell? And is the approach scalable? The presentation will review the implementation progress and the lessons learned so far, including the findings from a recently completed consumer behavioral diagnostic study on potential demand-generating activities to complement the supply side activities implemented to date.
