Abstract

Environmentally sound technologies (ESTs) are increasingly being promoted internationally, regionally and nationally as potential solutions to environmental challenges such as climate change and pollution, while building resilience and
creating opportunities for trade, economic growth and jobs. In East Africa, several policies have been adopted regionally and nationally to promote the diffusion of, and trade in, various EST-related goods, such as solar photovoltaic systems, wind turbines and solar water heaters, and services, including installation and maintenance. However, some barriers continue to inhibit trade in ESTs in the region, hampering the distribution and uptake of such technologies.
