The Moynihan Institute has received a one year $160,000 grant from Secretary's Office of Global Partnerships in the Department of State to conduct and evaluation of its role in creating and launching the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (GACC). GACC, one of the State Department’s flagship initiatives, seeks to leverage public-private partnerships to support a global market for clean and efficient household cooking methods and technologies. Its goal is to enable 100 million homes to adopt clean and efficient cooking solutions by 2020.  The evaluation will determine whether or not the Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships efforts toward the establishment of GACC can serve as a template for other State Department initiatives that seek to develop, deploy, and leverage sustainable public-private partnerships which advance U.S. foreign policy objectives. Bruce W. Dayton, the Associate Director of the Moynihan Institute, is the Principle Investigator for the grant.
