The Partnership for Clean Indoor Air (PCIA) was launched at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in September 2002 to address the increased environmental health risk faced three billion people who burn traditional biomass fuels indoors for cooking and heating. This voluntary Partnership brings together governments, public and private organizations, multilateral institutions, industry, and others to increase the use of affordable, reliable, clean, efficient, and safe home cooking and heating practices.

The mission of the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air is to improve health, livelihood and quality of life by reducing exposure to air pollution, primarily among women and children, from household energy use.
