Lack of access to improved stoves and cooking fuels poses serious risks to displaced people, including respiratory disease from cooking smoke, malnutrition due to undercooking or meal skipping, increased poverty from fuel expenses, exposure to physical and gender-based violence during firewood collection. Reliance on biomass fuel has also resulted in widespread deforestation and CO2 emissions.

This community group addresses access to safer and cleaner cooking fuels and technologies in humanitarian settings, including technical innovations, distribution approaches, social impacts and more. Read more »

5G Challenges

5G is the latest technology soon to be sweeping the world. Consumers are excited by the possibilities it brings, but businesses are concerned by the various 5G deployment challenges around. There’s plenty of talk about 5G vs. 4G, and it’s mainly around how much faster 5G is than its predecessor. But, to ensure that all this power and speed is unlocked, it has to be implemented and deployed correctly. 

The problem is that this is proving very difficult. There are lots of challenges facing network operators as they try and come up with the right way of deploying and implementing this new form of cellular data. Effectively, the main issue is that 5G demands a fully virtualized network core. The majority of standard networks are made up of physical pieces of equipment - routers, switches, etc. - but 5G requires Network Function Virtualization (NFV). This is essential because it’s the only way that businesses and network operators can provide the true power of 5G networks.
