Since its launch in September 2010 at the Clinton Global Initiative, the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves has moved rapidly to position the cookstoves sector to achieve unprecedented global progress. Critical investments such as those to establish global standards and analyze regional cookstove markets have begun; a comprehensive assessment of the field has been completed; and major awareness raising efforts are well underway – including the selection of highprofile ambassadors for the Alliance. With leadership under new Executive Director Radha Muthiah in place, a business plan for the Alliance due by the end of the year, a growing financial base for operations, and a rapidly growing list of partners – including 20 countries – the Alliance is well on its way to achieving its ambitious goal of 100 million households adopting clean and efficient cookstoves by 2020.
