The Global LPG Partnership (“GLPGP”) assists developing countries to plan, finance and implement national-scale availability and use of liquefied petroleum gas (“LPG”), to help prevent the 4 million annual deaths, severe forest loss, and vast impact on women's and children’s labor time caused by societal dependence on solid fuels for cooking.
Enable the transition of the maximum viable population to clean LPG use for household cooking by 2030, providing affordable access to modern energy as part of the transition to a sustainable future.
- Overall: Enable the transition of the maximum viable population to LPG by 2030, to avert approximately 1.3 million household air pollution related annual deaths and 6 million hectares of annual forest loss.
- Near term: (2018-2021): Plan and mobilize investments to scale up the LPG sectors in a minimum initial 4-5 countries and transition 75-100 million people to LPG (approximately US$ 1-2 billion in aggregate investment).
- Medium term: (2022-2024): Based on replicable learnings from successes in initial partner countries, expand activities to 5-10 additional countries, with a potential US$ 4-5 billion of needed LPG sector investments.
- Long term: (2025-2030): Be instrumental in transitioning 1 billion persons from traditional fuels and kerosene to LPG by 2030 to avert approximately 1.3 million HAP-related annual deaths and 6 million hectares of annual forest loss (about 40% of today’s global total).
