Result 7: Multi-stakeholder meeting, a successful between stove producers, retailers and consumer network.

On the 28th of August, a national multi-stakeholder meeting was conducted, with the aim of convening various actors in the stove supply chain as well as representatives from supporting organisations to share ideas and experiences related to the ICS programme.  Highlights included discussion about the establishment of an ICS producers’ association, which will be further explored during the follow-up national multi-stakeholder meeting in 2014.

 

Other examples of collaboration with stakeholders include five ICS producers in Champasak province obtaining loans from the commercial bank ACLEDA, in order to purchase clay mixing machines that will allow them to increase stove production and improve stove quality.

Actors in the ICS supply chain have been engaged at all stages of the programme’s implementation.  Inception meetings with producers and retailers have been conducted, as well as various training sessions followed-up with hands-on support in the field.  Promotional materials have been provided to a range of supply chain actors, based on the programme’s Communication and Visibility Plan, which was agreed upon in June 2013.
