Key Messages

  • Insufficient data means it is difficult to assess progress towards reducing deforestation driven by basic needs, such as subsistence agriculture.
  • Of all 21 million newly distributed stoves in 2015, 13 million were clean and/or efficient. This total, however, was down from nearly 15 million in 2014.
  • Between 2012 and 2015, Official Development Assistance for fuelwood declined from USD 81 million to just USD 3.2 million and clean cookstoves offset transactions also decreased from USD 65 million to USD 15 million. Funding to the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves increased by more than USD 6 million in 2015, before declining by USD 4 million the following year.
