This report, developed by ESMAP in collaboration with the Global
Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, builds a strong evidence-based case for
accelerating clean cooking solutions in pursuit of sustainable
development. It provides a comprehensive picture of the current state of
the clean cooking sector. Building on the latest literature and using
original research and analysis, the report maps sector demand and supply
trends, and provides the first ever global baseline and market forecast
for clean and improved cooking solutions. Additionally, the report
suggests a number of steps that governments, donors, non-governmental
organizations, and the private sector can take accelerate the adoptions
of clean, efficient cooking stoves and fuels.
The central message from the report is that the household cooking market
has immense potential with households, that together already spend over
US$100 billion annually on cooking fuel. While there remain formidable
challenges to overcome, there is significant opportunity in the large
and growing clean cooking market.
