Event

SNV will emphasise the importance of innovative partnerships to scale improved cookstoves initiatives and share experiences and learning at the upcoming Clean Cooking Forum 2022. The event will take place October 11-13 in Accra, Ghana.

In the countdown to 2030, it is more urgent than ever that we mobilise the necessary funding, partnerships, and policies to achieve clean cooking for all and accelerate progress toward global development and climate goals.
