LPG for Clean Cooking: Pursuing a Just Transition and Climate Gains

Developing countries bear the least responsibility for climate change and yet they are disproportionately impacted. As the world works to set itself on a path to Net Zero emissions by 2050, many stakeholders treat any expansion of fossil fuel use as a no-go in all contexts. This stance is at odds with development goals like SDG 7, universal energy access, and the goals of a Just Transition. When it comes to delivering clean cooking to the 2.4 billion people who lack it, LPG represents an affordable, feasible, and quickly scalable solutions. What’s more, providing LPG for cooking is in fact a climate win when transitioning households away from solid and polluting fuels.

This session will highlight recent research findings that show that transitioning households to LPG from polluting fuels for cooking produce net-positive climate impacts. Meanwhile, innovative business models are making clean cooking solutions more affordable and accessible than ever before. A vibrant market, paired with supportive policies from governments, and adequate financing are needed to set the world on a path to limit global temperate rise to 1.5°C.
