Overview



During Phase II of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves’ market-enabling roadmap, the Alliance and governmental stakeholders and partners are working to enable 17.5 million households to adopt clean cookstoves and fuels by 2020. Household Air Pollution (HAP) contributes to 70,000 premature deaths on an annual basis and affects 127 million people within Nigeria.
 
Nigerian enterprises have received both targeted funding support through Alliance enterprise development funds such as the Spark and Women’s Empowerment Funds, and are accessing investment and financing opportunities as a result of Alliance partnerships-brokering with microfinance institutions. The Alliance’s efforts have helped to develop a National Testing Center as a facility to test cookstoves and fuels, while supporting a Nigerian Alliance for the sector, and the capacity of stakeholders in the value chain including SMEs, financial institutions, microcredit institutions, NGOs, CBOs and Faith-Based Organizations to advance the country’s clean cookstoves and fuels sectors. Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki (Kwara Central) is a member of the Alliance’s Leadership Council.

Finally, the Nigerian Alliance for Clean Cookstoves in partnership with the Alliance is working to bring in 100 new partners, including from the private sector to further strengthen and support the distribution and marketing needs of the Nigerian clean cookstoves and fuels market.
