This workshop will build upon ongoing collaboration with the Guatemalan government, incorporate the perspectives of non-governmental stakeholders, and consolidate a locally-driven process to:
Draft a Country Action Plan. Workshop participants will work together to provide input into a draft Country Action Plan that:

o   Incorporates government strategies and partner roles.
o   Describes the specific role the Alliance and its partners can play in implementing interventions that are currently not receiving sufficient focus or resources.

Amongst others, explores activities towards an investment prospectus for universal access to clean cooking by 2030 as part of the UN Sustainable Energy for All Initiative.
