Cheaper, Cleaner, and Healthier: How to Stimulate Investments in Institutional Cooking
In the clean cooking sector, much attention is rightly given to household-level cooking. However, open fires and traditional biomass stoves are also widely used for entrepreneurial and institutional activities. Adopting cleaner and more efficient stoves for these commercial and productive applications can lead to improved working conditions, higher profit margins, reduced environmental impacts, and potentially higher-quality products. This session will share successful business cases for institutional and productive uses of improved cooking technologies in various sectors, including agriculture and fisheries. The session will feature a range of experts, including representatives from the private and public sectors as well as local implementers, to discuss exactly what is needed to improve the enabling environment, at the district and national level, and accelerate investments for institutional and productive cookstoves uses.
