Description

The objective of this manual is to present a methodology for assessing woodfuel supply and demand in displacement settings. It uses a multi-sectoral approach to address the energy needs and associated challenges of displaced people. The first part of the manual presents a methodology for assessing demand for woodfuel, which is structured around four sequential steps. Each step provides explanations and the means to collect data and information, based on the specific targeted area and population. The second part of the manual describes the methodology for assessing the woodfuel supply of the targeted area, based on a combination of field measurements and temporal change analysis of satellite imagery for the different land cover classes that provide woody biomass. The manual also presents a methodology for integrating demand and supply assessments into informed decision making for monitoring, evaluating and planning purposes in the targeted area.
