The Partnership for Clean Indoor Air was a global public-private partnership with membership of 590 non-profit organizations (~47%), private sector companies (~16%), governments and multilateral agencies (~8%), educational institutions (~12%) and independent consultants (~8%). Partners determined how they wanted to participate and contribute their resources and expertise to increase the use of affordable, reliable, clean, efficient, and safe home cooking and heating practices. Partners agreed to work collaboratively to further the PCIA mission to improve health, livelihood, and quality of life by reducing exposure to air pollution, primarily among women and children, from household energy use.

Partners received the following benefits:

• Outstanding capacity building and networking opportunities: Partners were eligible to participate in PCIA events including technical trainings, regional workshops, and international meetings and forums, including the Biennial Partnership Forum. These events gave Partners an outstanding opportunity to develop specific technical skills, and share results, best practices, and lessons learned with leading international energy and health experts from the public and private sector.

• Funding and activity updates: Partners received the quarterly PCIA Bulletin which highlighted the activities of the Partnership and individual Partners around the world, and included useful listings of funding opportunities, upcoming events, and more. Partners also received time sensitive information about funding opportunities directly by email.

• Increased exposure for their organizations’ work: All Partners completed a Partner Profile describing their organization that is still publicly viewable on this site at, and were encouraged to submit updates on their work for publication in the Bulletin, which was distributed directly to over 2,200 individuals at over 590 Partner organizations, including non-profit organizations, donors, educational institutions, government agencies and the private sector, as well as indirectly to far more through listserves and related websites. Partners also submited project factsheets posted on this site.
