Ensuring the inclusion of clean cooking in the SDG Indicator Framework

We are happy to announce that in collaboration with partners and based on extensive consideration, ENERGIA and the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (Alliance) have made indicator recommendations under Social Development Goals 3 (on health), 5 (on gender and woman’s empowerment), and 7 (on energy access). Our inputs have helped shape the current draft indicator framework.

We support the indicators on air pollution, unpaid work, and clean cooking that are currently in the draft framework and categorized as “Green,” meaning that they have general agreement and are well established. It is imperative that these indicators remain in the SDG measurement framework and that expanding energy access and reducing air pollution remain priorities throughout implementation.
