Funding short-lived climate pollutant reductions and other Sustainable Development Goal impacts linked to clean cooking and heating


This assessment explored what would be needed to drive funding to the SDG impacts related to clean cooking and heating interventions, focusing on those that have impact measurement methodologies in practice or in development, including:

  • Reductions of short-lived climate pollutants – SDG 13.2 (Black carbon, hydroflurocarbons – HFCs –, Tropospheric Ozone, Methane)
  • Greenhouse gas emissions reductions – SDG 13.2 issued either as Gold Standard Verified Emission Reductions (carbon credits) or potentially as Certified SDG Contribution Statements
  • Health – SDG 3.6 in the form of reduced household air pollution and exposure to particulate matter (PM2.5) associated with reduced Averted Disability-Adjusted Life Years (ADALYs)
  • Gender equality – SDG 5 with focus on women’s economic empowerment
