The IEA is convening global leaders for a Summit on Clean Cooking in Africa to make 2024 a turning point for progress on ensuring clean cooking access for all.

Today, nearly four in five Africans still cook their meals over open fires and traditional stoves, using wood, charcoal, animal dung, and other polluting fuels. This has dire impacts on health, gender equality and the environment, with women and children bearing the worst consequences. 

The IEA was the first international agency to start tracking energy access more than two decades ago and has been a steadfast voice advocating for clean cooking access ever since.

The Summit will be co-chaired by the President of the United Republic of Tanzania H.E. Dr Samia Suluhu Hassan, the Prime Minister of Norway H.E. Jonas Gahr Støre, the President of the African Development Bank Group Dr. Akinwumi A. Adesina and the Executive Director of the International Energy Agency Dr. Fatih Birol.

Margaret Kim, Gold Standard CEO is invited to take part to the conversations.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
