Nationally Determined Contributions and Clean Cooking


Household fuel combustion is the single largest source of manmade emissions of black carbon, a powerful short-lived climate pollutant that warms the atmosphere much more quickly than CO2. Recognising clean cooking as a critical climate solution will help to unlock the political will and financing needed to deliver clean cooking solutions at scale, and more effectively meet our climate goals. 

The inclusion of clean cooking in NDCs represents significant progress in utilising clean cooking to mitigate climate change while also taking advantage of adaptation and development co-benefits.
