Nigeria Clean Cooking Forum 2023 – Clean Cooking Energy for All in Nigeria: Advancing Public-Private Partnerships
The Nigeria Clean Cooking Forum is an important, annual gathering of stakeholders working to accelerate the production, dissemination, and use of cleaner, more efficient cookstoves and fuels. The current relationship between public and private partners in the clean cooking industry needs to be strengthened. The private sector in the clean cooking industry requires interventions to enhance value chain development, balanced product supply and demand, technology innovations and knowledge transfer for a seamless transition to carbon-neutral cooking. Both LPG, biofuel, methanol and energy-efficient cookstoves serve important segments of the required cooking-energy transition as they provide a bridge to a carbon-neutral cooking future where electricity and renewable energy will meet the nation’s cooking-energy needs in the long term. This will strengthen the actions of the Federal Government of Nigeria towards achieving the SDG 7 goal of affordable and clean energy, as well as SDG 9 and SDG 17.
The two-day Forum brings together key policymakers, private sector leaders, research institutions, civil society stakeholders and international partners to support an enabling environment to expand access to clean cooking, strengthen supply and enhance demand; as well as create new jobs and social inclusion through the availability of affordable clean cooking solutions to the poor and most vulnerable. The Forum will take stock of current status of clean cooking activities in the country especially at the state level; discuss how to leverage on carbon financing to expand access to clean cooking solutions, promote public private partnership on clean cooking as well as in humanitarian settings. Exhibition of clean cooking technologies and fuels will take place concurrently with discussions. B2B networking opportunities will also be promoted as the forum organisers will provide support for the development of partnership between key stakeholders’.
