Many social and environmental benefits can be achieved through household adoption of clean cookstoves and fuels, but research suggests that health benefits can only be achieved with near-exclusive use of low-emission stoves or through use of clean fuels.

In June of 2016, the Guatemalan Ministry of Energy and Mines and PHI convened a workshop with Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Industry stakeholders to help develop an action plan to strengthen the market and increase demand for LPG among Guatemalan households. Experts presented consumer studies about LPG that raised questions about cylinder safety, unsavory industry practices and LPG prices. The workshop facilitated discussion on strategies to address these weaknesses and increase LPG utilization, and marked the first time in 15 years that Industry and government representatives met and worked together—a milestone in sector collaboration.
