Session 4: Climate and emissions impacts of household solid fuel cooking

Abstract

This presentation was by Shonali Pachauri of the Royal Society, London.

Takeaway messages:

  • Emissions from solid household fuels have considerable impact on both human health and climate
  • Universal access to modern cooking and basic electricity services is achievable by 2030. This will require ~ 5% of global annual energy sector investments and dedicated policies. Significant health gains and negligible climate impacts are likely.
  • Climate finance can potentially play a larger role in financing clean cooking projects, but the suite of GHGs needs to be expanded and systems streamlined
  • Coordination across multiple policy arenas can make for more effective policies and will be required to achieve WHO AQG consistent PM concentrations
