Guidance Notes - Meeting Fuel and Energy Needs in Protracted Crises

Guidance Notes - Meeting Fuel and Energy Needs in Protracted Crises
Dec 2016
  • Access to fuel and energy – vital for food security – is often highly constrained in protracted crises.
  • The risks posed by limited access to fuel and energy are multiple and diverse depending on the context, including malnutrition, environmental degradation, a high work burden for women, gender-based violence (GBV) and unsustainable livelihood activities.
  • The inter-agency Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) initiative and FAO work on SAFE address the multi-sectoral challenges associated with energy and contribute to resilience-building in protracted crises. They also make a contribution to a number of principles in the Committee on World Food Security’s Framework for Action for Food Security and Nutrition in Protracted Crises (CFS-FFA).
