Abstract

The East African region has been a hub for the development and marketing of improved cookstoves from the 1980s. However, there are differences in the rates of uptake of stoves between Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. To investigate, we use a participatory approach to market mapping, identifying the key barriers to market growth. Our findings illustrate common barriers of access to finance, but also differences between the countries in their stove value chains and enabling environments. Participatory use of market mapping techniques would help to catalyse further action at the national level.
