Dear Friends,

It’s a busy time both at the Alliance and around the sector, with a number of opportunities for partners to engage around our shared goals. In partnership with the government of Norway, the Alliance launched the new Humanitarian Clean Cooking Fund this month. The Fund is designed to help increase access to cleaner, more efficient fuels and cooking technology for crisis-affected people, and we encourage those interested to apply. The Alliance has also released the annual Results Report survey, all organizations that manufacture or distribute stoves or fuels are invited to participate. I would also like to thank all those who applied for the new Spark+ Investor Readiness Program this month. We received a strong set of submissions and look forward to announcing the recipients later this year.

Finally, don’t forget to register for the Clean Cooking Forum 2017– early bird registration closes on August 1. I look forward to seeing many of you in New Delhi in October.

Our work continues,
