Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves
The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves is an organisation which seeks to promote the global adoption of clean burning cooking stoves. Millions of people cook inside over what are essentially open fires. This is particularly inefficient and so uses up a lot of wood, often in countries where the wood is already scarce. But perhaps of even more concern are the high levels of smoke inside the house. This leads to many illnesses, problems and deaths. The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves works to promote the uptake of efficient stoves around the world. They aim to do this by promoting the benefits of using such stoves, reducing trade barriers, improving supply and demand.
