The World LPG Association (WLPGA) has been a leader in these efforts through their work with the Cooking for Life campaign, among several other initiatives.

Join this webinar to hear results from global and regional campaigns, as well as specific examples of national-level LPG efforts in:

India – through the Indian Oil Corporation’s Smokeless Villages initiative, and

Haiti - through SWITCH SA’s work developing financial models to improve LPG affordability for low-income households.
