This presentation covers the problem, vision, mission, and goal of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves. Every day, 3 billion people rely on solid fuels to power their rudimentary stoves, leading to 4 million deaths annually, wasted productivity, and environmental degradation. The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves promotes a universal adoption of clean and efficient cookstoves and fuels in order to save lives, improve livelihoods, empower women, and preserve the environment.
This presentation provides an overview of the Guatemala market for clean cookstoves and fuels presented by the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves. Country assessments help the Alliance enhance sector market knowledge and develop a strategy and approach to country-level interventions.
