WEBINAR: Indonesia Clean Stoves Initiative: An Integrated Approach to Scaling Up Clean Cooking Solutions
Indonesia has made great strides in moving toward clean cooking solutions, beginning with the highly successful government supported Kerosene-to-LPG Conversion Program (2007–12) and the ongoing BIRU Biogas Program. However, some 24.5 million households in Indonesia continue to depend on traditional biomass as their primary cooking fuel. The momentum and lessons learned from these successful programs present a significant opportunity to promote and scale up high-quality biomass cookstoves in Indonesia.
In 2012, the World Bank, in collaboration with Indonesia’s Directorate of Bioenergy, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (Indonesia Stove Alliance), launched the Indonesia Clean Stove Initiative (CSI). The broad aim of this initiative is to scale up access to clean cooking solutions for the 40 percent of households who will likely continue using solid fuels beyond 2030.
Join the Winrock and U.S. EPA “Indonesia Clean Stoves Initiative ” webinar on Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 9:00am Eastern Standard Time (EST) to hear results from Phase 1 and to discuss CSI's integrated approach, using a results-based financing mechanism, to overcome supply- and demand-side barriers and institutional constraints.
