Partnership for Clean Indoor Air
The Partnership for Clean Indoor Air addresses the increased environmental health risk facing three billion people who burn traditional biomass fuels indoors for cooking and heating. This voluntary Partnership brings together governments, public and private organizations, multilateral institutions, industry, and others to increase the use of affordable, reliable, clean, efficient, and safe home cooking and heating practices.
The mission of the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air is to improve health, livelihood and quality of life by reducing exposure to air pollution, primarily among women and children, from household energy use. About 134 partners are contributing their resources and expertise in a collaborative effort to find long-term solutions to reducing smoke exposure in households around the world from cooking and heating practices.
