CCAK is a professional association formed in 2012 and officially registered in 2013
It has 46 members comprising representatives from government, academia, private sector, donor agencies, NGOs and individuals active in the clean cooking sector.
CCAK’s mission is to facilitate the scaling up of the clean cookstoves and clean fuels markets in Kenya through convening and coordinating the sector, advocating for enabling government policies, creating public awareness and capacity building. The association strives to build solidarity amongst relevant stakeholders and creates effective partnerships to ensure the use of clean cookstoves and fuels is the norm in Kenyan households and institutions. CCAK is dedicated to this goal because clean cookstoves and fuels save time, lives, money, forests and provide employment. Our aim as CCAK is to facilitate the increase of adoption of clean cookstoves and fuels to 5 million households in Kenya by 2020. Currently, CCAK is widely recognised by Government, private sector, civil society and other stakeholders in the sector as the “voice” of clean cooking.
