Overview

 

As part of Phase II of our market-enabling roadmap, the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves is working with the government of Ghana, partners, and enterprises to enable 50% of Ghana’s population to access LPG technology by 2020, and 50% to access clean cooking solutions by 2020. Clean cooking has also been integrated into Ghana’s Sustainable Energy for All Action Plan. Over 13,000 deaths occur each year in Ghana as a result of exposure to Household Air Pollution (HAP) and more than 21 million people are impacted by exposure to HAP each year.

In addition to helping to transition Ghana to cleaner fuels, the Alliance is partnering with government and in-country stakeholders, such as the Ghana Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (GHACCO), to improve the locally produced Gyapa-style cookstove through a variety of innovations to further increase efficiency and reduce emissions, support enterprise development through the Alliance Spark Fund, foster investment-ready entrepreneurs through capacity building and the Alliance’s Catalytic Small Grants Facility, and work with the government to improve the country’s regulatory environment to help strengthen and advance the clean cookstoves and fuels markets.

Ghana has also served as one of the first Alliance focus countries that has launched targeted-awareness raising campaigns and a pilot project to empower adolescent girls to serve as clean cookstoves and fuels advocates within their communities. The 2015 Biennial Clean Cooking Forum was hosted in Ghana, a major event that convenes the global clean cooking sector to share knowledge, best practices, and scalable solutions. Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration Hanna Tetteh is an Alliance Leadership Council member and served as co-host of the 2014 Cookstoves Future Summit. Ghanaian international music star, Rocky Dawuni, and former captain of the Ghanaian national soccer team, Stephen Appiah, are Alliance Ambassadors who champion the clean cooking mission.
