East Africa Regional Market Assessment Executive Summary
This Executive Summary describes the key points from the East African Regional Intervention Options paper prepared by Accenture Development Partnerships (ADP) on behalf of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (‘the Alliance’). It builds on the Market Assessments conducted by the Global Village Energy Partnership (GVEP) and ADP in four East African countries; Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda. The Market Assessments consist of two parts; an objective mapping of the sector and a series of intervention options that provide suggestions to help with the creation of a thriving market for clean cookstoves and fuels. These assessments are intended to provide a high level snapshot of the sector (based on mid 2012) that can then be used in conjunction with a number of other research papers, consumer surveys and other sources to help the Alliance decide which countries, regions and interventions to prioritize. Further detail on these assessments can be found at the end of this document.
