Climate and Health Co-Benefits of Clean Cooking

The health and climate co-benefits of clean cooking are an important field of study in cookstove research. This session highlights how evidence on the health and climate impacts of short-lived climate pollutants is being used to inform new black carbon standards and create a global advocacy plan. Target audience includes researchers, donors, investors, and cookstove program implementers interested in gaining a better understanding of the potential health and climate benefits of clean cooking solutions.
