The Government of Uganda (GOU) has received a Grant from the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), a multidonor trust fund operated by the World Bank, towards the cost of the Uganda Clean Cooking Supply Chain Expansion Project (UCCSCEP). The aim of UCCSCEP is to expand both access to, and adoption of, cleaner and more efficient cooking solutions, reduce household air pollution and related burden of disease, and reduce household consumption of and expenditure for biomass cooking fuels.
The key component of the project is the Distribution Challenge Fund (DCF) comprising several lines of support designed as a market incentive for participating consortia (typically made up of one efficient stove manufacturer and one or more distributors) to enable more efficient value chains by providing: (i) concessional finance in the form of both upfront financing and results-based financing for helping with the working capital and scaling up distribution networks, and (ii) cost sharing high-impact marketing campaigns to eligible manufacturer-distributor consortia including for flexible payment sales promotion schemes to consumers.
