This article calls for engaging the public and private sectors of developing and industrialized countries in a global clean cooking fuel initiative (GCCFI) to bring about a worldwide shift to clean fluid fuels for cooking and heating in 10-15 years' time - with an emphasis on providing clean fuel to the poorest households. This initiative is crucial to implementation of the Millennium Development Goals and the Plan of Implementation of the World Summit on Sustainable Development. The article builds on (1) analyses in this special issue of Energy for Sustainable Development of challenges to sustainable development posed by use of solid fuels for cooking and water heating (and for space heating in temperate climates) and opportunities for addressing them by bringing about a shift to clean fluid fuels, and (2) an extensive and compelling literature on the problems posed by this reliance on solid fuels.
