Enabling Access to Clean Cooking Energy for the Urban Poor

10 Mar 2021   |   1500 – 1615 IST

The sixth edition of CEEW Energy Access Dialogues  will focus on Enabling Access to Clean Cooking Energy for the Urban Poor. Urban slums suffer from double burden of air pollution. In addition to the high ambient particulate matter in cities, they are also exposed to household air pollution (HAP) from the use of unclean cooking fuels. The session will draw insights from a CEEW survey conducted across urban slums in six states—Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. The session will provide an overview of the cooking fuel use patterns in urban slum households. We will deliberate on the need to integrate access to clean cooking energy within the ambit of services for the urban poor to address the vulnerability of women, children, and communities to HAP.

Energy Access Dialogues is a quarterly forum where researchers and practitioners discuss their ongoing work in energy access, deliberate on its implications, explore possibilities for collaborative work, and review immediate priorities in the energy access space.
