Between January and June 2022, Mercy Corps – Energy 4 Impact conducted qualitative and quantitative energy assessments in selected displacement sites in Uganda, Rwanda, Somalia and Niger. These assessments aimed to understand the current and projected need for energy access, spanning from lighting, powering, productive uses and clean cooking. The key findings from these assessments will be shared in two webinars on 08 December and 13 December 2022, 15:00-16:30 CET / 17:00-18:30 EAT (plus an extra 30 minutes following the webinar for a more informal Q&A).
The webinars are targeted at all stakeholders working on humanitarian energy in these contexts, and will provide an overview of the following:
1) Country context relating to energy access and displaced people
2) Key stakeholders operating in the humanitarian and energy access fields
3) Current income sources and levels at selected sites
4) Current and future energy use, needs and priorities
The webinars will begin with presentations on the key findings in each country, followed by an interactive Q&A session, and the project teams will stay online for an extra 30 minutes following the webinar for a more informal discussion / Q&A. You’re invited to register through the following links:
