Guatemala Country Action Plan for Clean Cookstoves and Fuels

    Following the stakeholder workshop organized in Guatemala in July 2013 to discuss the analysis of the market for clean cookstoves in the country, the Global Alliance initiated the preparation of the Country Action Plan (CAP) for clean cookstoves and fuels. The CAP identifies relevant activities to overcome the barriers to the large scale adoption of clean cookstoves in Guatemala, and prioritizes short-term actions. In addition, the Country Action Plan helps organize the information and strategies that exist or are in discussion by stakeholders in the Guatemalan cookstoves and fuels sector. While the CAP will evolve over months and years to come, the initial version of the plan will inform the Global Alliance’s decision whether to include Guatemala as a focus country for future activities.
