UN Food and Agriculture Organization – Energy Needs in Humanitarian Settings

Case Study

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) works with partners on the Safe Access to Fuel and Energy initiative (SAFE) to address people’s energy needs during complex emergencies and protracted crises.

SAFE promotes a combination of energy-efficient technologies and practices, alternative energy sources, including renewables, the planting of trees, as well as opportunities for people to earn a living sustainably.

Consult FAO’s website to read up more about the importance of clean-energy technologies here.
