pdf.pngBRIEFING PAPER ON THE GAINS FOR WOMEN AS CLEAN COOKING ENTREPRENEURS TO INFLUENCE SUPPORT FROM GOVERNMENT FINANCED AFFIRMATIVE FUND NEW

Women play critical roles in scaling the adoption of clean cookstoves and fuels because of their central responsibility for cooking and managing household energy. In addition to deciding whether to use clean cooking products, women can catalyze the market as micro-entrepreneurs and small-sized enterprise owners through the distribution and delivery of clean cooking technologies and after-sales services that will contribute to the creation of a thriving global market. Since men do not commonly cook as much as women in the household, women’s experience can help them conduct point-of-sale activities. Simialarly, women can leverage their existing networks to promote the adoption of these new technologies and use their firsthand experiences in marketing solutions. In areas where there are high levels of gender inequality, female sales agents can directly reach women who cannot readily access cities or markets.

This project advocate for the development of policies and guidelines for the establishment of an affirmative fund for women entrepreneurs in the clean cooking sector. The funding will support women set up businesses or acquire loans to purchase clean cookstoves for their use. The project aims to increase women’s knowledge of clean cooking, hasten demand for clean cooking solutions while presenting the opportunity for investing as entrepreneurs in clean cooking through affirmative funding from the government. The identified women are taken through a sensitization process that involves presentations from relevant government officers both national and county, the private sector in the clean energy sector and other industry players, who are further linked to entrepreneurship opportunities in the sector while being exposed to available affirmative funds for viable, clean cooking ventures.

The participation of women, youth and marginalized groups in extraction, transmission and distribution of clean energy products has been inadequate leading to gender inequalities in the energy sector.

The project will see the development of policy guidelines on the establishment of an affirmative fund towards women entrepreneurs in the clean cooking sector to enable access of resources for setting up businesses or loan facilities to purchase clean cooking stoves for use in their houses.

pdf.pngHand Book for Sensitization on Clean Cooking Technologies for Public Officers

There is a need for a handbook on clean cooking in Kenya for public officers is in response to a gap that has been identified by several studies by the Government and the Clean Cooking Association of Kenya (CCAK) relating to the low uptake on use of clean energy devices in Kenya. Lack of awareness on the benefits and availability of clean cooking stoves, the financial burden on the users and lack of affirmative policies to support the availability and use of improved cooking technologies remains a big barrier. This is at a time when statistics indicate that a large population of Kenyans, especially in the rural areas depends on biofuels as the major source of cooking energy, despite evidence of harmful health, environmental and social challenges associated with their use.
