Promoting Clean Cookstoves
The Ghana Alliance for Clean Cookstoves and Fuels (GHACCO) is a national body formed with the mission ‘To promote partnerships among members of the alliance and other actors to ensure synergy in influencing policies and stimulating actions that contribute to a vibrant clean cook stove industry and sustainable utilization of biomass
NOYED-Ghana joined this body as an active member and actively led in the implementation of activities in northern Ghana aimed at promoting clean cooking in Ghana.
Through this alliance, both locally fabricated and imported cook stoves are promoted with the hope that Ghanaians will patronize them over the traditional cookstoves that are not fuel efficient and have high emission of smoke which affects the environment.
Through the proactiveness of NOYED-Ghana, the director and programmes officer were elected to serve as Zonal Coordinator and Secretary respectively. Also, NOYED-Ghana has been designated as the coordinating body with the responsibility of overseeing implementation in the Upper East and Upper West Regions.
