Close to 60 countries, as well as companies and development institutions, gather in Paris to channel unprecedented resources towards addressing a challenge affecting huge numbers of women and children

The first ever high-level Summit focused on providing clean cooking access to the more than 1 billion people in Africa who currently lack it has delivered a breakthrough financial commitment for addressing one of the world’s most persistent and deep-seated inequalities.

Co-chaired by the leaders of the governments of Tanzania and Norway, and the African Development Bank and the International Energy Agency, the Summit on Clean Cooking in Africa has mobilised USD 2.2 billion in financial pledges from governments and the private sector. Close to 60 countries took part in the Summit, with over 1,000 delegates in attendance. President Emmanuel Macron of France hosted a special session for heads of state and other leaders at the Elysée Palace on the occasion of the Summit.
