This discussion paper identifies the key elements needed to increase uptake of improved biomass cook stoves in the ACP-region, primarily in Sub-Saharan Africa.
It addresses the key aspects to ensure;
- continued over a long period of time
- scaled-up uptake after project end
- strong linkages to poverty reduction.
To succinctly address issues surrounding biomass cookstoves in sub-Sahara Africa, this paper will be limited to Tier 1 and Tier 2 cookstoves that use either firewood or charcoal or both.
