Achieving sustainable charcoal in Kenya Harnessing the opportunities for cross-sectoral integration
The charcoal sector in Kenya is ever growing along with urbanization. It can greatly contribute to the economic development, employment creation and the livelihoods of the population. However, lack of coordination among different ministries and actors in regulating the sector results in low profits for producers, the majority of whom are resource-poor farmers in drylands. This brief aims to raise awareness among Kenyan stakeholders on the urgent need to create an enabling environment for the charcoal sector through cross-sectoral integration.
This is one of technical briefs as outputs of the ICRAF-SEI bioenergy stakeholder workshop held in Nairobi, November 2013.
