Successful Distribution Models for Clean Cookstoves


Drawing on ten case studies in Africa, Asia and Latin America, an expert workshop and a literature review on the sector, the study “Mapping Successful Cookstove Distribution Models” outlines key lessons for the establishment of last mile distribution chains for clean cookstoves. Based on these inputs, three operational models and a series of best practices to raise the awareness, acceptability, access and affordability of clean cookstoves, are identified for scale up and replication across a variety of contexts. These learnings and a map of the challenges ahead are presented to help guide further last mile dissemination efforts of cookstoves and similar products that offer life-enhancing opportunities for members of the bottom of the pyramid (BoP). This study was carried out by SNV, the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves and Practical Action Consulting.
