This guide is an initiative of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, a public-private partnership with a mission to save lives, improve livelihoods, empower women, and protect the environment by creating a thriving global market for clean and efficient household cooking solutions. Julie Ipe of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves served as the lead author of the guide, and worked in close collaboration with Julia Rosenbaum and Elisa Derby of WASHplus, USAID’s global environmental health project, in its writing and development. Special thanks to Mark Maples, whose support in drafting and editing the guide were essential to its completion. The guide also benefited from the valuable inputs and edits provided by Radha Muthiah, Brian Smith, Leslie Cordes, Helen Petach, Chloe Shields, Corinne Hart, Kip Patrick and Kathy Nutt. Design was completed by the firm We Are How.
