A new research from the Clean Cooking Alliance underscores the need for the global community to expand access to cleaner cooking fuels and technologies. Today 2.4 billion people. mainly in Asia and Africa, do not have access to clean cooking. The World Bank estimates that this costs the world more than $2.4 trillion each year, driven by adverse impacts on health, nature, climate, and gender equality, and contributes to 3.2 million premature deaths annually. The report shows the potential to mitigate climate change as a nature-based solution. As communities around the world face a summer of extreme heat, drought and fire, the report sheds light on cooking as an often-overlooked cause of global carbon emissions, forest degradation, and preventable illness. Next to reducing climate impact, clean cookstoves projects contributes to various SDG’s: good health and well-being, no poverty, women empowerment & gender equality, affordable clean energy, decent work and economic growth.
