Global Progress on LPG for Cooking: What Can We Do to Accelerate Getting to a Greater Scale?

A number of countries have included LPG as part of their country’s clean cooking strategy but challenges remain in scaling supply, distribution, and consumer acceptance. This session will review progress underway in expanding the use of LPG for cooking, and explore common experiences in several countries in scaling up the use of this clean fuel. The panel discussion will focus on what these countries can do to identify opportunities for action, as well as how to tap strategic public-private partnerships to grow the sector.
