Mapping Indicators for Humanitarian Energy Access and the Decarbonisation of Operations

It is hoped that alignment of institutions around these central indicators may lay the foundation for harmonised data collection and analysis in forced displacement settings.

Within the report, 16 core indicators are outlined for humanitarian energy which cover access at the household, enterprise, community facility, and institutional levels for both electricity and cooking needs. We urge all organisations and projects working in the humanitarian sector to collect these indicators, and to share the results across the GPA community, in order to enable a global baseline on energy access to be produced. Such data will support measuring progress on greenhouse gas emissions and achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 7) on clean energy access for all displaced people by 2030.
