Need for clean cooking in sub-Saharan Africa

2023-12-28 16:18

Access to clean cooking fuels has improved around the world. In Asia, governments have been pushing policies to improve access to LPG cylinders and electric stoves.

In Nepal for instance, now 54% of the households rely on biomass compared to 75% 10 years back, due to the government initiative to improve LPG access, Tuladhar said. In India, the world’s most populous country, government push improved LPG access from 43.8% in 2016 to 58.6% in 2021. While the numbers are higher for urban households, rural areas continue to lag.

But in sub-Saharan Africa, the number of people without access to clean cooking has increased. “Population growth has outpaced these improvements, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa where the number of people without access reached 0.9 billion in 2021,” according to WHO’s report.
