Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves

cookstovesThe Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves is the Energy Access Practitioner Network’s sister initiative under the United Nations Foundation, focusing on clean cooking solutions as a complement to the Practitioner Network’s emphasis on decentralized electrification to scale energy access.

Launched in September 2010 by former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton at the Clinton Global Initiative, the Alliance has an ambitious 10-year goal to foster the adoption of clean cookstoves and fuels in 100 million households by 2020.  The Alliance and its partners are working to establish a thriving global market for clean cooking solutions by addressing the market barriers that impede the production, deployment, and use of clean and efficient cookstoves and fuels in developing countries.

A number of our Practitioner Network members are also Alliance partners. To become a partner, please visit
