ACCESS Coalition partners in the country led by the Kenya Climate Change Working Group (KCCWG) championed against the introduction of VAT- currently rated at 14 per cent, on clean cooking and solar products. The stakeholders voiced a concern that such a move will erode the numerous gains that have been made towards the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal seven (SDG7) in Kenya. The consortium partners included Hivos East Africa, Clean Cooking Association of Kenya, Green Africa Foundation, Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (CAFOD), SUSWATCH, WWF-Kenya, and Sustainable Energy Access Forum- Kenya (SEAF-K).
