Description

This Global Plan of Action for Sustainable Energy Solutions in Situations of Displacement (GPA) is a non-binding framework that will provide concrete actions for accelerated progress towards the vision of “safe access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy services for all displaced people by 2030.” Its mission is to equip all stakeholders with the capacity to mainstream sustainable energy solutions into programming and implementation, with the goal of delivering improved protection, dignity, and energy-related social, environmental, and economic benefits to displaced people.

This document comprises the first part of the GPA – the Framework. It provides a brief overview of the current state of energy in situations of displacement and identifies five major challenges that must be addressed in order to improve the current situation. Each challenge is addressed by one of five GPA Working Areas -- Planning and Coordination; Policy, Advocacy, and Host Country Resilience; Innovative Finance; Technical Expertise, Capacity Building, and Training; Data, Evidence, Monitoring and Reporting.
