Overview

As part of Phase II of our market-enabling roadmap, the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves is working with partners, such as the Clean Cookstoves Association of Kenya (CCAK), and Kenya’s Ministry of Environment, Water, and Natural Resources, and the Ministry of Health to promote the adoption of clean cookstoves and fuels among 5 million households by 2020. Over 15,000 deaths each year are attributed to Household Air Pollution (HAP) in Kenya according to World Health Organization estimates, and 36 million Kenyans have their health impacted by exposure to HAP each year.

Kenya has served as the initial focus country to launch and test consumer facing campaigns to raise awareness on HAP and clean cooking solutions among affected populations, which will serve as a framework to scale future consumer generation activities in other focus and partner countries. The Alliance has also been helping generate consumer demand and financing options within Kenya by partnering with major banks to increase access to mobile payments for cookstoves purchases. On the supply side, Kenyan clean cooking enterprises and non-governmental organizations have received both targeted funding support through Alliance enterprise development funds such as the Spark and Women’s Empowerment Funds, and investment opportunities through Alliance partnership efforts. Finally, the Alliance is working in conjunction with the government to help support technology and fuel regulations by 2017, setting up a Regional Testing and Knowledge Center, and supporting the Ministry of Health and the Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) to monitor, report, and verify the health benefits associated with the scale up of cookstoves and fuels adoption during Phase II.
