Between January and June 2022, Mercy Corps – Energy 4 Impact conducted qualitative and quantitative assessments in selected displacement sites in Uganda, Rwanda, Somalia and Niger. These assessments aimed to understand the current and projected need for energy access, spanning from lighting, powering, productive uses and clean cooking. The key findings from these assessments will be shared in two webinars; the first on Tuesday 29th November will focus on Uganda and Rwanda followed by a second one on Tuesday 13th December focusing on Somalia and Niger.
The webinars are targeted at all stakeholders working on humanitarian energy in these contexts, and will provide an overview of the following:
1) Country context relating to energy access and displaced people
2) Key stakeholders operating in the humanitarian and energy access fields
3) Current income sources and levels at selected sites
4) Current and future energy use, needs and priorities
The webinars will begin with presentations on the key findings in each country, followed by an interactive Q&A session.
