The Clean Cooking Alliance’s (CCA) Youth Strategy serves as the framework to guide CCA in its work with and for youth across the clean cooking ecosystem.
Youth are disproportionately affected by the lack of clean cooking access and, more than anyone else, will bear the future burden of inaction. In developing countries, where 90% of the world’s 1.8 billion youth reside, 2.3 billion people still rely on polluting fuels and stoves for cooking. Limited access to clean cooking solutions restricts youth development.
Youth are not only leaders of tomorrow but also leaders of today, shaping the world through their choices and needs. Their engagement is crucial to achieving universal access to clean cooking and meeting global goals. However, youth are not adequately valued across the sector, resulting in limited access to information, inclusive opportunities, and skill development.
CCA’s Youth Strategy aims to facilitate increased impact and expanded action to address the needs, build the agency, and advance opportunities for youth to lead ambitious clean cooking transitions.
