SNV energy experts will participate in the upcoming Clean Cooking Forum 2019 which is organised by the Clean Cooking Alliance. This year's theme is “Investment. Innovation. Impact,” and will focus on how best to attract investment to this underfunded sector.

Although 3 billion people around the world still cook on traditional biomass stoves which can adversely affect health, clean cooking is vastly underfunded, accounting for less than 1% of what is needed to achieve SDG 7. Compared to the global need for clean cooking technologies, finance commitments remain minuscule.

About the event

The Clean Cooking Alliance and the Kenya Ministry of Energy will be co-hosted by the Clean Cooking Forum 2019, which will be held in Nairobi, Kenya, from November 5-7.  The sector’s flagship event will bring together hundreds of attendees from around the world working to build an inclusive industry that makes clean cooking accessible to the people who live each day without it.

SNV energy experts Baastian Teune, Rianne Teule and Lynette Korir will give their perspectives on innovative approaches to attract investment into the sector during breakout sessions at the event.
