A meeting was held in July 2015 to convene expert scientists from both the health and environment/climate communities. Purposes of the meeting were to (1) share the latest evidence on the relationship between cookstove emissions and health and climate impacts, including evidence attributable to key pollutants and evaluation methodologies, (2) determine which pollutant measurements should be prioritized in order to estimate both health and climate impacts and 3) discuss shared goals between the two communities, as well as research gaps and needs moving forward. The meeting was intended to move the communities towards consensus on the priority suite of pollutant species to be measured in order to best estimate health and climate co-benefits.
