Transforming the Cookstoves and Fuels Market in Nepal

More than 60% of households in Nepal rely on fuelwood and traditional or chimney mud stoves to satisfy daily cooking needs. Emissions from these sources have led to high levels of indoor and outdoor air pollution, making household air pollution the third leading cause of early mortality and years of lost life in Nepal.

To address this problem, the government of Nepal aims to achieve universal access to electricity and electricity-based cooking by 2030. At the government’s request, CCA is leading the development of a Country Action Plan for Transforming the Cookstoves and Fuels Market in Nepal.
