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.
