Title:Towards a sustained use of Adhanet improved biomass cook stove: issues in dissemination
Author:Idris, Khalid Mohammed
Periodical:Journal of Eritrean Studies (Asmara)
Geographic term:Eritrea
Abstract:In Eritrea, the tested performance of the Adhanet improved biomass cook stove has been hailed a success by the media. Its potential for improving the quality of lives in rural and urban households has been equally lauded. This study explores the process of actualizing this potential by attempting to identify and analyse issues in the dissemination process that affect the proper and sustained use of the stove. In order to do this, the study employed in-depth interviews, focus group discussions among stakeholders, and the author conducted field observations of its implementation to create first hand accounts of this process. The findings indicate that there is a need to increase closer interactions between the designers and key implementers, as well as to plan a more efficient follow up of the installation process in order to increase the benefits of the improved stove.
