By on

Samira Bawumia has announced her appointment as an ambassador for the United Nations’ Foundation Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.

The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves project focuses on improving health and environment through encouraging changes in cooking methods and types of stoves used in developing countries to pollute less and reduce indoor air pollution.

According to the World Health Organization, 4.3 million people a year die from health problems attributable to exposure to smoke from solid fuel stoves.

The non-profit Alliance was announced in 2010 by then-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

They also provide grants for research and initiatives that support the aims of the Alliance, advocate for international standards for stove manufacturers and coordinate research and knowledge of the issues surrounding the use of clean cookstoves.

The organization is supported by governments, corporations, foundations, civil society, investors, and individuals.

The wife of Vice President announced her appointment on her Facebook account.

“I am honoured to be named ambassador for the United Nations’ Foundation Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves. I am passionate about seeing to it that the essential task of cooking does not result in death. I would like for us all to join in the drive to reduce the harmful effects of cooking with firewood and charcoal. No life should be lost through cooking.

“I look forward to engaging all stakeholders in this regard. Thank you all very much.”
