The Clean Cooking Delivery Units Network

Empowering national governments to achieve transformative clean cooking outcomes

National governments are the key to achieving universal access to clean cooking by 2030, but they cannot deliver on their aspirations alone.

In response, CCA is establishing the Clean Cooking Delivery Units Network (DUN), a new platform designed to provide tailored support to national governments in achieving their clean cooking ambitions. CCA is partnering with governments in Africa and around the world to launch Clean Cooking Delivery Units (DUs), dedicated teams of clean cooking experts that report to presidential or ministerial leadership. In turn, CCA will provide the funding, technical support, and connections through a suite of Network services to ensure each Delivery Unit is successful. Through Delivery Units, governments will – for the first time – be empowered to coordinate clean cooking activities, policies, and programming to accelerate access at a national level. Furthermore, these Delivery Units will provide a springboard for emerging talent to build a career in public service and exercise leadership within their nations.

CCA is proud to partner with the Government of Kenya to establish the inaugural Clean Cooking Delivery Unit in the Executive Office of the President of Kenya, which will be closely followed by a second Delivery Unit in the Executive Office of the President of Sierra Leone. Several additional sub-Saharan presidential offices are in active discussions to join the DUN, which aims to establish at least 10 Delivery Units across Africa, Asia, and Latin America in the coming years.

H.E. William Samoei Ruto, President of the Republic of Kenya: “We are fully committed to achieving our ambitious target of universal access to clean cooking by 2028, a key pillar of our climate agenda. In pursuit of this goal, we are introducing a groundbreaking initiative, the inaugural Delivery Unit on clean cooking. This unit will have a direct reporting line to me, aimed at elevating the significance of this matter as a top priority within the government. By fostering collaboration across cabinets and adopting a systemic approach on planning and capability, we aim to swiftly bridge the access gap. We take great pride in pioneering this innovative governmental initiative, which ultimately aims at improving the quality of life for the people of Kenya.”

H.E. Julius Maada Bio, President of the Republic of Sierra Leone: “Achieving a radical economic and social transformation in Sierra Leone hinges upon massive improvement in access to energy including clean cooking solutions. This is precisely why we are proud to launch along with the government of Kenya, the first set of dedicated Delivery Units on clean cooking energy access — a pivotal catalyst that will enable us to drive widespread change. We are committed to integrating the Delivery Unit into our institutional framework to ensure its enduring presence within national policies. By turning our vision into reality and leveraging our partnership with the Clean Cooking Alliance, we will usher in a new era of smart, inclusive, and sustainable energy transition in Sierra Leone.”

Dymphna van der Lans, CEO, Clean Cooking Alliance: “Delivery Units are the backbone of wider progress. Government leadership and action can unlock public and private sector funding; facilitate clean cooking transitions that are equitable and inclusive of the poorest and most vulnerable populations; and enable markets to function for the private sector.”
