What role can energy play in bridging the humanitarian- development divide?

German Room (FAO Headquarters)
 Rome time

Worldwide, 3 billion people live without access to clean cooking and 1 billion without electricity. Access to fuel and energy is often left out of development and humanitarian response planning and implementation, with dire consequences for the most vulnerable communities.


 This seminar, co-hosted by the SET4food initiative funded by the European Union Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Department (ECHO) and FAO at the FAO headquarters in Rome, will highlight the implications of this major gap in response and, through pertinent case studies from the field, illustrate how energy needs and related risks and challenges can be better understood, quantified and addressed.
