Through dedicated advocacy, research, and convenings, the Alliance and its partners have helped elevate clean cooking on the global development agenda. Today, governments and the private sector are driving innovation and sustainable growth in the clean cooking sector. To achieve its goals, the Alliance engages in deep collaboration with eight priority countries.
Where We Work
Globally, three billion people depend on polluting, open fires and inefficient fuels to cook their food. In sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, the lack of access to clean cooking is especially acute, with a third of the urban population and the vast majority of the rural poor using cooking fuels like wood, charcoal, coal, and kerosene.
