In the Decade for Delivery, Governments Are Key to Unlocking Transformation

While thriving market systems are needed to achieve universal access to clean cooking, national governments have an indispensable role to play in supporting innovation, attracting private investment, and mobilizing the international resources required to ensure energy transitions are just and equitable for both people and the planet.

Yet national governments often face myriad challenges that prevent them from implementing ambitious and sustainable clean cooking transitions. As a result, in many countries clean cooking mandates are not elevated, monitored, and optimized as effectively as they could be.

This session will highlight the catalytic potential of strong government leadership in delivering robust clean cooking ambitions. To avoid incrementalism, national governments require the support of the ecosystem to help set and deliver ambitious, locally owned agendas. The Clean Cooking Delivery Units Network seeks to do just this by investing in local leaders, elevating their capacity, providing tailored funding and technical support, and facilitating connections to resources and peers. Speakers will discuss the full value proposition of the DUN as a solution that invests in building the capacity of countries at the ecosystem, institutional, and individual levels.
