Session 7: Lessons learned from scaling cookstove interventions

Abstract

Presentation by Monika Rammelt of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. Five lessons were discussed:

  • People select cooking energy on demand – fuel and stove stacking instead of gradually climbing up the energy ladder
  • Sustainable introduction of cookstoves is only possible through the creation of a dynamic market
  • Monitoring, quality control and after-sales support are crucial for ensuring sustainability
  • Changing cooking patterns requires more than marketing the new stove
  • A global programme permits efficient up-scaling.
