Overview

Boiling Point 64 discusses barriers from many countries including Ethiopia, Haiti, India and Cambodia. First, the University of Nottingham start to unpack the wider understanding of ICS amongst different actors and begin to categorise and explain the barriers in relation to their project that aims to better understand the barriers to the introduction and uptake of ICS in Southern Africa. Other theme articles in this issue compare and contrast regional barriers, report on ICS programmes that have successfully incorporated community participation, and specifically address the role of women when addressing barriers to ICS uptake. Posed from the field, a Helpline question on testing and certifying ICS is addressed by experts from both India and Kenya, and Eco Ltd features a Stakeholder Barrier Analysis in the Toolkit section of this issue. Interviews with Kirk Smith, Professor of Global Environmental Health and HEDON Patron, and with Brady Luceno, Assistant Director of Project Gaia, sheds light on further barriers such as fuel supply, ICS standards and indoor air pollution targets.
As always, this issue also features general articles including a report on the recent Sustainable Energy for All Forum, a summary of Practical Action’s Poor People’s Energy Outlook report and a special article from South Africa’s Restio Energy on support for small businesses and entrepreneurs in energy access. Boiling Point 64 features news pages from several organisations, including the issue’s sponsors: University of Nottingham, the Alliance, StovePlus and GIZ, to whom we are extremely grateful for their support. To all of our 15 000 print copy and 21 000 online readers in over 100 different countries, we hope ‘Barriers to Cookstoves’ offers an insightful and educational exploration of the challenges and possible solutions to ICS uptake and beyond.
