Some countries have access to clean cooking technologies and fuels, others are more dependent on the use of polluting, open fires or inefficient fuels for their household cooking needs. The Alliance has gathered information from a number of sources to provide country-level snapshots of a range of factors related to access to clean cookstoves and fuels.
