FAO’s work on Safe Access to Fuel and Energy in Kenya

Feb 2016

In July 2015, FAO carried out a mission to assess the fuel needs and associated risks and challenges faced by women in the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs) of Kenya. This work was carried through collaboration between the Climate and Environment Division (NRC), the Emergency and Rehabilitation Division (TCE) and the FAO Kenya office. The mission also provided technical support for project OSRO/KEN/501/EC “Strengthening linkages between refugee and host communities in Kakuma to improve incomes and nutrition”.

The mission is an example of FAO’s work on Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) which is an important part of Strategic Programme 5: Increasing the Resilience of Livelihoods to Threats and Crises.
