RBA design options for the National Programme for Improved Household Biomass Cook Stoves Development & Promotion in Ethiopia
RBA should be preferred to RBF( because of the fragmentation of producers and the preparedness of the Ethiopian government)
Greenhouse Gases (GHG) Avoided:
A total abatement potential of 14 Mt of CO2e over three years due to the effect of reduced degradation at a cost of US$2-2.7/tCO2e
US$30-40 million (Potentially only US$17-23 million of these costs would be appropriate to recover through an RBA initiative).
World Bank (ESMAP)
Within government, the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) will be responsible for alignment of this programme with the broader Climate Resilience Green Economy (CREG) strategy, the identified sixty CRGE initiatives, including the clean cook stove program, could help the country to achieve its economic development goals while at the same time emitting 250 Mt CO2e less than is expected under its current development path.
Description of the RBF Scheme:
Hybrid distribution and usability indicator
1) A disbursement (output) indicator based on the number of ICS sold meeting a certain pre-defined quality criteria.
2) A multi-tier (outcome) indicator based on the application of the ESMAP proposed approach to measuring access to modern cooking solutions.
3) A hybrid indicator. This approach would separate the RBA payment into two components. One component would be paid proportional to the number of stoves distributed. The second component would be paid out in a way that was proportional to improvements under the multi-tier framework.
