Description

While humanitarian responses have helped to save lives, it is widely acknowledged that they have not done enough to enable affected populations to withstand or absorb shocks and avert future crises. As a result, there is a growing consensus on the importance of building the resilience of people and their livelihoods. This special issue of the State of Electricity Access Report (SEAR) discusses the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)'s activities towards reducing risks and vulnerability at the household and community levels by improving access to sustainable energy.
