The Clean Cooking Alliance has several core principles which infuse its work to spur adoption of clean cooking solutions:

  • The primacy of a market-based approach (without directly selling stoves or fuels) to reach and sustain scale, while also ensuring that vulnerable populations have access to clean cooking solutions;
  • A focus on high-quality approaches that can be brought to scale;
  • A commitment to technology and fuel neutrality, while gradually driving solutions and markets toward advanced and clean options;
  • A recognition of the importance of building on the ongoing work, knowledge, and expertise of our sector partners;
  • The importance of bringing new partners, donors, and investors to the table;
  • A focus on the needs of the consumer and the role of women in driving adoption and scale;
  • The inclusion of metrics and evaluation as a key tenet of the Alliance’s approach.
