Webinars on Safe Access To Fuel and Energy (SAFE): A multi-stakeholder and cross-sectoral initiative to build resilience

05/09/2017 14/09/2016

This webinar series was organised with support from the European Union.

More than a third of the world's population relies on traditional fuels—wood, coal, animal dung, and agricultural waste—for their energy needs, including cooking their meals, heating their homes, and lighting their communities. The challenges they face in accessing clean energy are numerous, often dangerous and unsustainable, particularly during complex emergencies and protracted crises.

Safe and sustainable access to energy is being increasingly recognized as a human right—essential for the safety, well-being, and productivity of the people the humanitarian community serves. It is also essential for social and economic development, offering opportunities for improved lives and economic progress.

A series of two webinars will be held starting early September. The webinars will present how Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) addresses this cross-sectoral issue focusing on ensuring access to fuel and energy for cooking, heating, lighting, and powering for crisis-affected populations. The events will highlight the synergies and multi-stakeholder approach of this initiative inviting key partners to present their role and experience within SAFE.

Guest speakers will include experts fom the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, COOPI, UNHCR, WFP and FAO and cover topics such as protection and gender, education, environment, health, food security and nutrition, livelihoods, camp management and multi-stakeholder coordination.
