Renewable Energy in Camps and Post Conflict Zones

The "Renewable Energy in Camps and Post Conflict Zones" Collection highlights how energy efficiency and renewable energy can reduce carbon emissions, deforestation and gender-based violence against women in refugee camps and internally displaced person settlements. For example, by introducing solar lamps and energy efficient cooking stoves you can promote energy efficiency and lessen the need for people to have to go out and to collect firewood. Further, the private sector can play an important role here by improving energy access in the camps. This collection was compiled by Shelter Centre Project Assistant Moses Sikuku Wakwabubi.

@Boris I got your question, from the previous camps I have worked in, it is very sustainable and an alternative source of energy. It is used in nearly all the camps as getting electricity is not feasible. It reduces deforestation and provides clean energy to affected persons.

Moses, I appreciate the work you have done, it is impressive. I want to know the place of solar energy in the Camps and Post Conflict Zones. Can this solution be a sustainable one ?
