Promotion of Climate-Friendly Cooking : Kenya and Senegal


Titre Promotion of Climate-Friendly Cooking : Kenya and Senegal

Pays : Senegal and Kenya

Durée : 2020 to 2024

Commissioned by : German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

Traditional biomass represents approximately 15 per cent of total global energy use and helps meeting the cooking needs of approximately 2.5 billion people. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) estimated that replacing traditional open fires with improved cookstoves (ICS) has a global mitigation potential between 0.6 and 2.4 giga tonnes of CO2 equivalent per year, while delivering a wide range of sustainable development benefits.

Objectifs  : The project is accelerating the growth of the ICS sector with an irreversible market transformation that will significantly increase the level of ICS production and sales, particularly in more remote and rural locations, thereby enabling the two project countries, Kenya and Senegal, to significantly advance the achievement of their stated Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) goals.

Starting in Kenya and Senegal, the project aims to demonstrate an innovative ICS market transformation strategy and thereby improving global knowledge about ICS sector contribution to NDCs. It will significantly increase the number of ICS users amongst rural and most vulnerable populations in both countries, directly benefitting 11.23 million people and 1.91 million mainly rural households, including 610,000 women-headed households and 5.57 million children. The project will significantly limit consumption of non-renewable biomass in the cooking sector compared to the baseline situation. This will lead to greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions of 6.47 Mega tonnes of CO2 equivalent during the project period and to an additional reduction of 24.77 Mega tonnes of CO2 equivalent until 2030. It will enable Senegal and Kenya to reach their stated NDC targets for GHG emissions in the energy sector.

Financement : Green Climate Fund (GCF), BMZ, and various project partners including Kenyan ministries and Senegalese ministries
