Clean Cooking as a Catalyst for Sustainable Food Systems

2023-12-06 14:01

On Dec.3rd, the Clean Cooking Alliance (CCA) released a new report “Clean Cooking as a Catalyst for Sustainable Food Systems,” which sheds light on the energy-food nexus. The report was launched at the COP28 during a side event at the Sustainable Agriculture of the Americas Pavilion. The report highlights the key role that clean cooking plays in transforming the food system by mitigating climate change and environmental degradation, supporting restoration and climate-smart agriculture, building resilience in agricultural communities, and improving nutrition and food security.


“Clean cooking is not just about preparing meals; it’s about building resilience and supporting livelihoods,” said CCA CEO Dymphna van der Lans. “The findings in our new report underscore the pivotal role clean cooking plays in transforming our food systems. It is a clarion call for collective action, urging governments, investors, and corporations to recognize clean cooking as a linchpin for resilient, inclusive, and sustainable global food systems.”

Without substantial reforms in our global food system, the consequences of inaction loom large. By 2030, 1.9 billion people could still be without access to clean cooking, while nearly 600 million people will be chronically undernourished. Up to 80 million more could experience hunger by 2050.

Fortunately, we have the knowledge and technologies to provide affordable clean cooking to every person in the world, but only if governments, investors, and the private sector make it a priority. Integrating clean cooking into food policy and programs, and increasing finance and collaboration across the food and energy access sectors, will produce multiplying effects for all other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
