The Clean Cooking Alliance
The Clean Cooking Alliance (the “Alliance”) works with a global network of partners to build an inclusive industry that makes clean cooking accessible to families around the world. Established in 2010, the Alliance supports the development, sale, distribution, and consistent use of clean cooking solutions that transform lives by improving health, protecting the climate and environment, and helping families save time and money. In alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals, the Alliance is working to achieve universal access to clean cooking by 2030.

The Haiti Cookstoves and Clean Energy Market Project  
The Haiti Cookstoves and Clean Energy Market Project (the “Project”) will set the foundation for a long-term, sustainable transformation of the market for cleaner and more efficient cooking solutions. This is driven by a motivation to reduce negative climate, environmental, economic, and health impacts from traditional cooking practices on the Haitian population, with a focus on reducing the disproportionate impacts on women and girls.

Our efforts will entail a combination of sector-wide, market development activities, including capacity-building support for the government, private sector, and other stakeholders; advocacy and technical assistance on the development of policies and regulations conducive to market development; and various other support and sector coordination. The Project will be led by the Alliance, in close collaboration with the Government of Haiti, local stakeholders, practitioners, the private sector, donors, civil society organizations, and UN agencies.
