Traditional biomass represents approximately 15 percent of total global energy use and helps meeting the cooking needs of approximately 2.5 billion people.

The IPCC estimated that replacing traditional open fires with improved cookstoves (ICS) has a global mitigation potential between 0.6 and 2.4 Gt CO2eq/year, while delivering a wide range of sustainable development benefits.

This project aims to accelerate the growth of ICS markets in Kenya and Senegal and significantly increase the level and quality of ICS production and sales, particularly in remote rural areas. The intended outcome is to triple annual ICS production and sales by project end and achieve a six-fold increase by 2030, thereby supporting Kenya and Senegal to reach their stated NDC targets. The project is estimated to directly benefit 11.23 million people and lead to GHG emissions reductions of 6.47 Mt CO2eq during the project lifetime and an additional 24.77 Mt CO2eq by 2030.

This project has an estimated lifespan of 5 years.
