Lighting includes both artificial light source like lamps and light fixtures, as well as system able to enhance the natural illumination by capturing daylight. In a humanitarian context, energy under the form of (appropriate) light plays an important role on multiple levels, such as: improving the quality of life within the household; reducing the use of dangerous alternatives such as kerosene lamps; adding security to communal areas, e.g. water pumping stations; allowing for certain activities to take place after dark. What are the appropriate lighting technologies? How should they be deployed?
