Learn why support for clean cooking solutions is needed
The Modern Cooking Facility for Africa is a new financing programme supporting scale-up of clean cooking solutions in six Sub-Saharan African countries. The aim of the programme is to provide 3 million people in Africa with access to clean, modern and affordable cooking solutions by the end of 2027.
Over 4 billion people globally and almost 900 million people in Sub-Saharan African countries lack access to modern and clean cooking solutions. This is the only region in the world where access to clean cooking solutions has not kept pace with population growth.
The aim of the MCFA programme is to provide 3 million Africans with access to clean cooking solutions, initially in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The programme will also aim to have a large positive environmental impact, mitigating deforestation and avoiding CO2 emissions, as well as improving overall health and increasing economic growth in the project countries.
