12 November 2019 | On November 5, the Clean Cooking Alliance launched the “CleanCookingIs…” campaign, a first-of-its-kind global campaign to generate awareness, engagement and support for clean cooking. Momentum towards universal access to clean cooking is much-needed: eight out of ten people in sub-Saharan Africa are deprived of safe, clean and affordable cooking solutions with adverse consequences for their health and the environment. To help address this challenge, GET.invest has pledged to support the “CleanCookingIs…” campaign and doubled down on its efforts to mobilise the clean cooking sector and financiers to unlock necessary investments.
As part of this reaffirmed commitment, GET.invest hosted a series of activities at the flagship event of the clean cooking industry – the Clean Cooking Forum 2019. This year’s forum convened some 500+ stakeholder to build a more inclusive and prosperous industry. At the event, GET.invest hosted two B2B Matchmaking Sessions and, in cooperation with the Energising Development Programme (EnDev), the very first Clean Cooking Master Class.
