You’re invited to join an online event on clean cooking and heating fuels in this session hosted in partnership with the Health and Energy Platform of Action (HEPA), the Clean Cooking Alliance (CCA) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

In this session, “Defining and achieving clean cooking” , presenters will first define which fuels and technologies are considered clean for health and summarize the new WHO Air Quality guidelines. A panel of energy access experts will then present and discuss how policies can support transitions to different clean household energy options. This component will include a presentation of the new WHO Household Energy Policy Repository, which summarizes policies on clean fuels for cooking, heating and lighting from over 30 countries.
