UN Environment/OCHA Joint Unit (JEU)
The Afghanistan Environment and Humanitarian Action (EHA) country-level study is one in a series of studies undertaken by the Joint UNEP/OCHA Environment Unit (JEU) in 2015 that assesses the extent to which environmental concerns have been mainstreamed in humanitarian action. The study provides guidance and advice to humanitarian actors on how to improve environmental mainstreaming in a protracted crisis. It recommends incorporating energy considerations into emergency preparedness and response, referencing efficient cookstoves and solar technology.
