Many developing countries have been hard hit by the double "energy crisis" of threatened fuelwood supply and the increasing burden of oil imports. During the last decade energy provision has become a vitally important issue so that energy is now regarded as a basic factor of production ranking in importance with classical components: land, labour and capital. Careful and innovative energy planning has become a necessity for successful development. This book, dealing with the role of woodfuels in rural Kenya, is the first in the series of technical support Volumes for the Main Summary Report of the Kenya Fuelwood Project, "Energy and Development in Kenya: Opportunities and Constraints". This series report on the methodology and findings of the Kenyan and SADCC studies.
