Highlighting conditions in the Dadaab camp in Kenya, the world’s largest refugee camp. This video was produced to support a Chatham House report examining how current energy provision to displaced people undermines humanitarian assistance.
Displacement of people as a result of conflict is not a new phenomenon – but today it represents an unprecedented global challenge. Millions of displaced people lack access to clean, safe and secure energy services, in part because funding for such services is inadequate. The lack of reliable data on energy use in the humanitarian field shows that it is a neglected area. But the evidence reveals a huge opportunity to provide better and more sustainable energy services.
