About

The government of Cameroon has set out an exemplary national planning process to start the country's transition to LPG as a predominant cooking fuel, with a goal to move from 12% national usage to 58% by 2030.  This will result in a highly significant reduction of PM2.5 - black carbon - and other short-lived climate pollutants, reduce deforestation, and protect the health of lower income households.
