The U.S. Commitment to Cookstoves in Africa
In September 2010, Secretary Clinton announced the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, a public-private partnership led by the United Nations Foundation to save lives and combat climate change by creating a thriving global market for clean and efficient household cooking solutions.
Seven African nations have joined the Alliance, including Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, and Tanzania as well as the Nigerian Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, which includes four Nigerian federal ministries. Fact Sheet»
