Market-Based Approaches to Energy Access in Humanitarian Contexts
There is growing recognition that ensuring access to clean energy in humanitarian contexts improves quality of life of conflict and crisis affected communities while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and ensuring environmental protection (commitments 2 and 6 of the Humanitarian Climate and Environment charter), yet humanitarian organizations have yet to systematically integrate clean energy across programming and operations. This session aims to discuss the ‘how to’ and lessons learned from different approaches to delivering market-based energy access for humanitarian operations and conflict affected communities at scale, based on learnings from displacement settings in Rwanda, Ethiopia, South Sudan and Niger. The focus of the discussion will be on how to leverage grant finance and innovative finance mechanisms to reach scale, as well as how to partner with the private sector for end-user focused energy product and service delivery.
