Pre-Conference Workshop

Clean Cooking Fuels: A two-day pre-conference workshop

The key objective of the workshop is to increase understanding of barriers to the transition
to cleaner, more efficient fuels and technologies for meeting the cooking needs of the poor
and measures for enhancing access, affordability and supply. The major themes of the workshop
are analysis of successes/failures of past policies to improve access to modern fuels;
strategies of suppliers of modern fuels: substitution, market creation; role of the private
sector in financial leveraging, venture capital, and business models to scale-up successful
initiatives; the role of the government and public policies, particularly as regards pricing
and providing the regulatory framework needed to attract private participation; ways of making
energy provisioning for the poor a central component of broader development strategies. More
detailed information is provided in the
Concept Note.”
