Players and Initiatives Database


The database of initiatives maps out past and on-going projects and programs in the modern energy cooking sector. The database is categorized by global, regional, and national cooking initiatives. The database does not represent an exhaustive list of programs, but rather seeks to provide a broad sample of stove and fuel initiatives spanning different geographies and technologies.


The database of players contains over 2000 different organizations active in the modern energy cooking sector. These players are categorized by geography of operation and organization type. The database builds from the Clean Cooking Alliance’s Partner Directory which includes self-reported information by industry players.
