The vision for this working area is to “unlock wide ranging policy and governance change, which will make it easier to meet the energy needs of displaced people”. In particular, this will mean the following:

  • At the international level, States and other stakeholders agree to a global policy framework that encapsulates a clear vision. This commitment fosters systematic change, allows innovative financing, and enables all stakeholders to measure progress towards energy goals for displaced people in terms of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
  • At the national level, the energy needs of displaced people are incorporated into development, energy and climate change action plans as well as national level preparedness and contingency planning.
  • At the community level, local policies enable the investment in financially sustainable clean energy services for the benefit of displaced populations and host communities.
  • At the sectoral level, energy-service considerations and priorities are integrated into programming. Donors and humanitarian actors are actively making provision for sustainable energy solutions, safer and cleaner fuels that contribute to local sustainable development objectives.
