Welcome to the website of the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air. More than 200 partner organizations are contributing their resources and expertise to reduce smoke exposure from cooking and heating practices in households around the world.  This collaborative effort is focused on four essential elements of effective and sustainable household energy and health programs:

  • Meeting the needs of local communities for clean, efficient, affordable and safe cooking and heating options;
  • Improving cooking technologies, fuels and practices for reducing indoor air pollution ;
  • Developing commercial markets for clean and efficient technologies and fuels; and
  • Monitoring and evaluating the health, social, economic and environmental impact of household energy interventions.

Join forces with these organizations and become a partner.
