Results-Based Financing for Clean Cookstoves in Uganda
This report was prepared in collaboration with IMC Worldwide for the Africa Clean Cooking Energy Solutions (ACCES) initiative of the World Bank. The report sets out the opportunity for implementing results-based financing (RBF) to support the clean cookstoves sector in Uganda. The fundamental idea behind RBF is that payments to a service provider are made contingent on the delivery of a pre-agreed result, with achievement of the result being subject to independent verification. An RBF approach is feasible as part of a broad package of measures to scale up the efficient and clean cooking sector in Uganda, the larger goal being to achieve a range of benefits, including health, in coordination with the government and key stakeholders.
