Clean and Improved Cooking in Sub-Saharan Africa: A Landscape Report

- N/A

Reliance on solid-fuel cooking in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is a large and growing problem. More than 700 million Africans (82%) use solid fuels, such as wood, charcoal, dung, crop waste, and coal, for their primary cooking needs—a number that will reach 850–900 million by the end of the decade. This high level of solid-fuel use, combined with household reliance on inefficient and unsafe traditional cookstoves, constitutes a first-order public health crisis: household air pollution (HAP) from solid-fuel cooking emissions kills nearly 600,000 Africans annually and is now recognized as the second-largest health risk factor in terms of death and disability in the region.
