Growing People, Growing Businesses, Growing Economies

Achieving universal access to clean cooking requires enabling policies, increased financing, and innovative business models. But there is another necessary factor that is often overlooked: whether we have the skilled workforce to deliver. Despite growing demand for clean cooking appliances and fuels, there is a shortage of talent to design, manufacture, distribute, and maintain the solutions as well as driving innovations on policy and financing. Scaling the clean cooking sector is a massive economic opportunity, with the potential to create millions of decent jobs across its diverse value chains, including in remote communities that need economic activity the most, and for women and youth who are most affected by the lack of clean cooking access.

This session will discuss the economic opportunity of clean cooking, the job opportunities associated with the sector and the skills and talent gap this has highlighted, along with exploring solutions to ensure the necessary workforce to provide affordable, accessible clean cooking solutions to billions of people around the world.
