Clean Cooking Forum 2022: EnDev shows transformation and innovation
EnDev is announced as one of the key sponsors for the Clean Cooking Forum 2022. The conference will convene private sector actors and global leaders to pave the way for clean cooking for everyone.
This year’s Clean Cooking Forum will take place from the 11-13 October in Accra and is co-hosted by the Clean Cooking Alliance and the Government of Ghana. EnDev is supporting the forum as one of its main sponsors, is present in multiple sessions and co-hosts a booth together with MECS at the Innovation Expo. With its contributions, EnDev aims to advance knowledge exchange within the clean cooking sector.
The conference is a vital opportunity to facilitate the global discourse on reaching SDG7 (ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all). This is all the more important as still 2,4 billion people worldwide use inefficient and polluting cooking systems like the traditional three stone fire. The Forum not only provides a framework for knowledge sharing, but also a platform for in-depth, holistic exchange on the topic, as all stakeholders in the clean cooking sector, including policy makers, entrepreneurs, investors, donors and other key partners, are represented.
Monday (October 10), 9 AM-5 PM @ Kempinski Hotel
