Clean Cooking Activities
TreeeS is implementing a clean cooking programme which is developing innovative value chains, to deliver cooking appliances of high performance standards, in partnerships with multi-sectoral organisations that have a good outreach to the great majority of households, small enterprises and institutions that face severe scarcities of fuel wood for cooking.
The programme is planned to deliver 20,000 stoves over a period of 24 months, that is till December 2014.
So far 5 civil society organisations at national level have joined the partnership. A hundred (or more) stovepreneurs will be involved, with 50 and 30 per cent being women and youth respectively.
Major activities of the programme will include training of stove producers and distributors, lobbying for policy support, raising funds for market development, awareness raising among consumers, marketing promotion, performance testing, quality assurance mechanisms and project monitoring.
The beneficiaries of the programme are (i) the households (and other groups) that use wood fuel for cooking, (ii) cooked food vendors and small restaurants and (iii) cook stove producers, suppliers and distributors.
TreeeS will share both past and ongoing experiences with the market-led dissemination of clean cooking appliances and techniques. As described earlier, we have an ongoing clean cooking programme which is unfolding and exploring a variety of dissemination models and value chains, the results of which we can share with the partnership.
