Tackling energy needs in displacement settings: new report on humanitarian energy

Lifeline is proud to have contributed to the latest report on energy for micro-enterprises in displacement settings developed by EnDev in collaboration with Practical Action.

The report provides a comprehensive knowledge base built from direct experiences across West Africa, East Africa, Jordan, and India. In-depth interviews were conducted with project teams to identify concrete recommendations that will strengthen future energy initiatives for micro-enterprises in displacement settings. Key areas of insight include:

· Effective partnerships
· Enabling policy environment
· Access to finance
· Market activation
· Gender considerations, and more.

Featured in the report is a case study and key learnings from Lifeline’s Safe Access to Fuel & Energy (SAFE) project in Uganda, a 2018-19 a collaboration with the World Food Programme that used market forces to improve access to efficient energy technologies and strengthen community resilience.
