GLPGP, in collaboration with the University of Liverpool (UK) and the Norwegian Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research (CICERO) has started a 12-month research project in Cameroon. The study aims to model the health and climate impacts of LPG expansion in alignment with the Government goal to make LPG the primary cooking fuel for about 60% of its population by 2035.   

Study findings will be used to inform the energy strategies of key public and private sector players in Cameroon. They will also provide the basis for further research on health and climate benefits in other sub-Saharan Africa countries which are undertaking large-scale transition to LPG for cooking purposes.
