Accelerating Access to Clean Cooking Will Require a Heart-Head-and-Hands Approach
Society for International Development
The world is far off track from achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7 target for universal access to clean cooking by 2030 owing to a lack of prioritization. Breaking this impasse requires transformative public- and private-sector solutions and large-scale investments that can improve the overall cooking ecosystem with end users’ needs at the centre. Recent trends in designing more effective solutions are gaining momentum. By working together with a ‘heart-head-andhands approach’, stakeholders can move the needle forward on clean cooking, and in the process, contribute to the SDGs for health and well-being, women’s empowerment, and a cleaner environment.
