INDICATOR 1: GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION OF CLEAN COOKSTOVES
• Woodfuel interventions, in particular clean cookstove distribution, are accelerating rapidly. Although not all cookstove programs will reduce pressure on forests or reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions -the primary reason for cookstove distribution is often the health benefits of reduced exposure to indoor emissions-, many will, as a large number of cookstoves are being distributed in countries where woodfuel consumption is driving forest degradation.
INDICATOR 2: FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR WOODFUEL INTERVENTIONS
• While measuring total finance flows is not straightforward, several data sources indicate escalating sums. ODA directed to the woodfuel sector has increased from an annual average of US$3.6 million between 2006 and 2009, to US$47 million between 2010 and 2013. According to a Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves market survey, cookstove project developers received US$273 million in financing in 2014.
