The needs and priorities for humanitarian energy in four sub-Saharan countries assessed in webinar series


Between January and June 2022, Mercy Corps - Energy 4 Impact conducted qualitative and quantitative energy 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 lighting, powering, productive uses and clean cooking. The findings from these assessments were presented at two webinars hosted by the Global Platform for Action (GPA) in December 2022 and provided:

  • specific country context relating to energy access and displaced people
  • an overview of key stakeholders operating in the humanitarian and energy access fields
  • a review of current income sources and levels at selected sites
  • insights into current and future energy use, needs and priorities.

The recordings of the webinars are available on the GPA website.
