The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (Alliance) was launched in 2010 with a goal to drive the adoption of clean cookstoves and fuels in 100 million households by 2020. In pursuit of this objective, the combined efforts reported by a wide range of Alliance partners working on different aspects of the issue are having positive impacts on public health, women’s empowerment, improved livelihoods, re- duced environmental degradation, and enhanced energy access. This report tracks partners’ global progress in 2012 toward their shared adoption goal, building on pre- vious years’ results reporting conducted by the
United States Environmental Protection Agency’s Partnership for Clean Indoor Air (PCIA).
