Market Assessment Report: Funding SLCP reductions and other SDG


In 2015, 193 countries worldwide adopted 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to tackle major issues the world faces, from ending poverty, protecting the planet, to ensuring prosperity for all. Clean cooking and heating interventions deliver against a wide range of these SDGs, helping improve livelihoods, providing access to clean energy, contributing to gender equality, improving health, conserving natural ecosystems, and more.

To date, carbon credits have been used as a primary vehicle drive finance to these projects, with other life-changing development impacts packaged as ‘co-benefits’ to the carbon reductions. Their value was not directly monetised, representing an unmet opportunity to mobilise additional funding for these transformative interventions.

This report explores the potential to direct funding to these additional SDG benefits delivered by clean cooking and heating technologies.
