Driving Climate Action through Clean Cooking
You’re invited to join the Health and Energy Platform of Action (HEPA), the Clean Cooking Alliance (CCA), and the World Health Organization (WHO) for the seventh session in our webinar series, "Transitioning to Clean Cooking."

This session, co-organized with the Climate and Clean Air Coalition, will highlight clean household energy as an essential strategy for mitigating climate change and improving health. Following presentations by energy and climate experts, the session will review the science and co-benefits of clean household energy with a particular focus on: (i) achieving countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions; (ii) addressing the dearth of funding for scaling up clean household energy; (iii) solving the climate and energy challenges faced by low- and middle-income countries; and (iv) implementing various climate financing tools.
