Clean Cooking Alliance
The Clean Cooking Alliance is a network of global partners working to create a thriving global market for clean and efficient household cooking solutions.
Hosted by the UN Foundation, the Alliance was launched in 2010 by then U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. We began with an ambitious 10-year goal to foster the adoption of clean and efficient cookstoves and fuels in 100 million households by 2020. While we are well on our way to meet this goal, it’s only the beginning. We are working to ensure universal adoption of clean cooking solutions by:
Enhancing demand for clean cookstoves and fuels;
Strengthening the supply of clean cookstoves and fuels; and
Fostering the enabling environment for a thriving market for clean cooking solutions.
The Clean Cooking Alliance secretariat is guided by a Leadership Council composed of select high-level stakeholders, donors and experts who advise in all strategic matters, including decisions related to its mission, programmatic focus, growth, and development. The day-to-day work is led by a team of deeply-committed professionals working across five continents toward universal access to clean cooking.
Save lives, improve livelihoods, empower women, and protect the environment by creating a thriving global market for clean and efficient household cooking solutions
How They Do It
The Alliance is focused on four core pillars to accelerate clean cooking access:
- Driving consumer demand for cleaner, more modern cookstoves and fuels by supporting behavior change and awareness raising interventions;
- Building a pipeline of investible businesses capable of answering this demand with affordable, high-quality, appropriate clean cooking products;
- Improving the policy environment by providing trusted, relevant data and advocating for regulations and policies that allow the industry to thrive; and
- Increasing investment community participation and global engagement by providing market intelligence, delivering a clear path to action, and continuing to serve as the convener of the clean cooking sector.See more
