Week of Clean Cooking Recap

Thanks for joining CCA and partners for the first-ever Week of Clean Cooking!

From October 18-22, 2021, the Clean Cooking Alliance (CCA) hosted the Week of Clean Cooking, a series of virtual engagements, events, content releases, and networking opportunities to catalyze action on clean cooking.

With more than 1,000 attendees representing 42 countries, the Week of Clean Cooking brought together actors from across the clean cooking ecosystem to engage, learn, network, and share knowledge that will help drive progress during this critical year and beyond.

CCA joined numerous partners to host 13 virtual sessions featuring 70+ speakers, more than 60 percent of which were women.

One of the week’s top headlines included the launch of a new Clean Cooking Energy Compact, a call to action already endorsed by more than 40 governments and organizations around the world.

Other highlights included “A Conversation on Clean Cooking, Women, and Trade,” co-hosted by the World Trade Organization; an interactive discussion on climate and health hosted by the World Health Organization, CCA, and HEPA; and a four-day Matchmaking and Networking session hosted by GET.invest that attracted more than 200 registrants.

“Lack of access to clean cooking is killing a lot more people than we think, and it’s affecting our planet at an alarming rate. We all have to stand up for this.”
— Damilola Ogunbiyi, CEO, Sustainable Energy for All
