Senegal Clean Cooking Solutions - Quantitative and Qualitative Market Study
Differ was sub-contractor to TNS RMS Senegal together with Shared Value Africa on the World Bank Access Initiative ‘Senegal Clean Cooking Solutions – Quantitative and Qualitative Market Study’. The study provides insights on the stoves and fuels landscape in Senegal and identifies key demand-side and supply-side trends and issues in order to capture the opportunity areas in the Senegalese clean cooking market.

Differ was responsible for the supply-side and policy part of the study and conducted 22 semi-structured expert interviews in Dakar and Thies. Interviews were conducted among stakeholders at all levels of the clean cookstoves and fuels’ value chain, including manufacturers, retailers, forest managers, research centers, governmental bodies, financial institutions, and women cooperatives.

The supply-side section of the report analyses the charcoal and fuelwood value chain from regulations to production and sales. It maps current clean and improved cookstove projects and actors, analyses various distribution and retail models, as well as available financing mechanisms such as micro-financing. The policy section identifies government programs, maps current policies and regulations and government bodies relevant for the clean cooking sector in Senegal. Finally, the report offers recommendations on how to remove bottlenecks along the clean cooking value chain in Senegal, how to increase interest from commercial market participants, and how to scale-up adoption and increase impact.
