Clean Cooking Solutions in Informal Settlements in Sierra Leone
Clean Cooking Alliance
Financial: (Grant)

With funding from the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) of the UK government, ICLEI Africa and Energy 4 Impact are looking to fund one energy-based small and medium enterprise or partnership to deliver interventions that can improve clean cooking in Susan’s Bay informal settlement in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Interventions will be implemented through the Enabling African Cities for Transformative Energy Access (ENACT) project, which is part of the Transforming Energy Access (TEA) programme.

The ENACT project aims to create an enabling environment to improve energy security in Africa’s urban areas, with a focus on the urban poor living in informal settlements, by introducing market-led interventions for improved energy access. This funding round in Freetown is therefore designed to create a market for companies or partnerships to implement locally viable, innovative, replicable, and scalable interventions that will improve access to clean cooking solutions (LPG, electric, biogas, and ethanol) for local communities, leading to improved health, social, and economic outcomes.

For this purpose, up to £50,000 will be allocated as grant funding to one successful applicant for a project in Susan’s Bay informal settlement that will run for up to 9 months from September 2021.

The application window is open until 03 August 2021.
