The Partnership for Clean Indoor Air (PCIA) and the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (the Alliance) – two international organizations working to improve health, livelihood, and quality of life by reducing exposure to indoor air pollution from rudimentary cookstoves and open fires – have approached the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for recommendations on advancing international standards for clean cookstoves for use in promoting clean and efficient home cooking technologies in developing countries.
