Cooking with Gas: Why women in developing countries want LPG and how they can get it
The issue of women and access to modern energy services is real. A focus on energy and women’s health is critical for reducing child mortality and improving maternal health in a tangible, scalable, and sustainable way. One of the many ways we can meet our global target of providing universal access to energy is transitioning to the use of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). LPG is a portable, clean and efficient form of energy source and thus ideal for cooking and heating purposes for women. In October 2013, Sustainable Energy for All and the World LPG Association signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and both organisations committed to accelerate access to LPG for one billion people in developing countries by 2030.
