Location: Dhaka, Bangladesh

The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (GACC) in collaboration with Catalyzing Clean Energy in Bangladesh (CCEB) is arranging a half day workshop titled "Action Plan for Accelerating ICS Market Development in Bangladesh." The workshop on 17th September will be a follow-up discussion on the outcomes of the Second Annual Market Facilitation Platform 2014 (To be held on 16th September), focusing on “Barriers to Accelerated Market Development”.

International manufacturers and donors have been working for the last two years to create a market for improved Cookstoves in Bangladesh. However, the up-take has been slow. The aim of this workshop will be to engage the manufacturers and identify the key problems and challenges that are hindering the growth of ICS in Bangladesh.
The Alliance cordially requests you or one of your representatives to participate in the event. Please kindly confirm your participation by the 16th
