Description

This flagship report by the Moving Energy Initiative (MEI) - a consortium of organizations including Chatham House and the Global Village Energy Partnership (GVEP) - focuses on the energy needs and use of refugees and displaced people worldwide. It presents the first-ever estimates of the volume and costs of energy used in situations of forced displacement worldwide. The evidence strongly suggests the need for an overhaul in the way that energy is managed within the humanitarian sector and shows how new approaches could benefit refugees and displaced people, host country communities and the environment.
