Driving Demand, Delivering Impact.

Clean Cooking Forum 2017 – Driving Demand, Delivering Impact – marks an important milestone for the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (Alliance) and the cooking sector as we celebrate the impressive strides of the cleaner and more efficient cooking sector, as well as India’s leadership in the sector.  The 2017 Forum will be held from October 24-26th in central Delhi at the India Habitat Centre, and is being co-hosted by Tata Trusts, TERI, and CLEAN with support from NITI Aayog. The Forum will bring together over 500 global leaders and practitioners from business, finance, civil society, the UN, government, and academia to share best-practices, explore innovative approaches and financing mechanisms, and help forge new partnerships during three days of informative sessions, networking events, and technology and fuel demonstrations.  We will also offer Forum participants a range of site visits on October 27th and 28th to view the latest Indian business models, cookstove designs, and consumer LPG enterprises.

The Alliance and the sector are several years into our journey to create an enabling environment for scaling cleaner and more efficient cooking solutions. Toward this goal, we chose to focus on Driving Demand, Delivering Impact for this year’s theme as we collectively move the dial on enhancing awareness, demand, and use of cleaner and more efficient cookstoves and fuels. Stakeholders will come together to share their efforts to drive demand and achieve greater impacts for women’s empowerment, environment, livelihoods, and health.

We hope that we can count on your participation at this important biennial event and look forward to seeing you in October!
