Strategic intent of Nepal Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (NACC)
The strategic intent of NACC is to coordinate efforts and create synergies for providing Clean Cooking Solutions for All by 2017.
In order to raise public awareness of clean cooking solutions, NACC will adopt major communication tagline of Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves: Cooking Shouldn't Kill.
The NACC is an alliance of organizations engaged in all renewable clean cooking technologies including Improved Cookstoves, solar cookers, biogas and electricity based cooking. Fossil fuel based technologies such as LPG, kerosene etc., despite being clean cooking options, have not been included within the scope of NACC as these are outside the purview of AEPC.
