The UNHCR Energy Monitoring Framework is designed to promote a standardized approach to tracking program performance and impact across countries, while remaining flexible enough to meet the needs of individual operations and partner organizations. The Global Indicators table displays data for UNHCR (and externally) financed programs in two primary focus areas – sustainable fuel and cook stoves, and household and community lighting – in terms of distribution, utilization, maintenance and more. To compare a set of countries, or key population groups within them, select a year, output area and sub-area, then choose a range of indicators and countries to populate the table below.

The UNHCR Energy Monitoring Framework takes a program-based approach to monitoring, with the aim of tracking both outputs and the impact of UNHCR dollars spent on programming (either via partners or through direct implementation). The process for developing the indicators began in 2015 with a review of existing tools and approaches and consultations with Government, Private Sector, field-based staff and NGO partners to devise a set of common, standardized measures rooted in global good practices. Broadly, the methodology consists of five key steps: i) Indicator Selection and Submission of Monitoring Template, ii) Implementation of Baseline Beneficiary Survey, iii) Implementation of Endline Beneficiary Survey, iv) Completion of Partner Survey, and v) Data Analysis and Publication of Results.
