Sandra Cavalieri

Coordinator, Sector Hubs, Climate & Clean Air Coalition

Sandra Cavalieri is the Coordinator, Sector Hubs at the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) Secretariat, hosted by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). In this role, she coordinates CCAC State Partner and non-State Partner work to mitigate black carbon and methane from the household energy, agriculture, waste, and fossil fuel sectors; black carbon from the heavy-duty diesel vehicles and engines sector; and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) from the cooling sector. The CCAC’s Household Energy Hub works closely with State Partners to include household energy in their integrated air quality, climate, and health planning, and substantially increase sustained use of clean/modern fuels and technology. Prior to joining the CCAC Secretariat in 2012, Sandra spent six years at the Ecologic Institute in Berlin, Germany, where she led a number of multi-year stakeholder dialogues focused on Arctic environmental governance.

Turning Clean Cooking Commitments Into Action to Achieve Climate Goals

Project Drawdown, which analyzes scenarios to avert catastrophic climate change, ranks clean cooking as the sixth most impactful climate solution in a list of nearly one hundred of the most effective climate mitigation strategies to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C. And yet, clean cooking is one of the most underfunded climate and development solutions in the world. The time has come for the clean cooking sector to claim its place at the table and own its indispensable role in the fight against climate change.

Many countries have already taken notice that fighting climate change means advancing clean cooking access. A total of 67 nations include household energy or clean cooking-related goals in their NDCs. But we must transform these commitments into action. Countries need the support, the expertise, and, above all, the money to rapidly scale up clean cooking access and deliver the tremendous climate benefits that come with it.

This session will focus on country-level efforts to achieve climate goals through clean cooking and the need for a massive infusion of funding from diverse sources to realize these untapped climate wins.
