The Art and Science of Clean Cooking Policy Innovation

The implementation of ambitious, locally owned clean cooking agendas will ultimately require the development of effective policies and strategies that put these ambitions into action by supporting and incentivizing clean cooking innovation and investment.

To be successful, national governments must incorporate high quality data and technical expertise, ensure that policy and strategy development processes are inclusive of both public and private sector stakeholders, and have buy-in at national and sub-national levels. While each country context is unique, there is much that can be learned from the successful development of innovative policies and strategies across contexts.

This session will compare and contrast approaches to clean cooking policy and strategy development across several countries, highlighting the tools that policymakers are using to develop robust policies and strategies, and sharing best practices that can accelerate universal access to clean cooking across contexts.

Watch this session.
