|| Clean Cooking Forum 2017 – Driving Demand, Delivering Impact – marks an important milestone for the Alliance and the cooking sector as we celebrate the impressive strides of the cleaner and more efficient cooking sector over the past two years, as well as India’s leadership in the sector. The 2017 Forum will be held from October 24-26th in central Delhi at the India Habitat Centre, and is being co-hosted by Tata Trusts and TERI, with support from NITI Aayog. The Forum will bring together over 500 global leaders and practitioners from business, finance, civil society, the UN, government, and academia to share best-practices, explore innovative approaches and financing mechanisms, and help forge new partnerships during three days of informative sessions, networking events, and technology demonstrations. We will also offer Forum participants a range of site visits on October 27th and 28th to view the latest Indian business models, cookstove designs, and consumer LPG enterprises.
The Alliance and the sector are several years into our journey to create an enabling environment for scaling cleaner and more efficient cooking solutions. Toward this goal, we chose to focus on Driving Demand, Delivering Impact for this year’s theme as we collectively move the needle forward to enhancing awareness, demand, and use of these higher-quality cookstoves and fuels. Stakeholders will come together to share their efforts to drive demand and achieve greater impacts for women’s empowerment, environment, livelihoods, and health outcomes The Forum is an opportunity to assemble these committed individuals and further global adoption of cookstoves and fuels.
