Renewable Energy For Refugees (RE4R)

Chatham House is working with Practical Action and UNHCR on implementing the Renewable Energy for Refugees (RE4R) project in Rwanda and Jordan.

This project is led by Practical Action and UNHCR and delivers renewable energy investments through an innovative approach in humanitarian settings, working directly with refugees and host communities in Kigeme, Nyabiheke and Gihembe refugee camps in Rwanda and with urban refugees in Irbid in Jordan.

The project provides access to affordable and sustainable sources of renewable energy, and improves the health, wellbeing and security of target populations.

As part of this programme, Chatham House works on a series of research activities and outputs that look to disseminate and scale up the lessons-learnt and evidence-generated by the programme.
