Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) projects are being implemented in humanitarian contexts across the globe. The map below displays past and present SAFE projects. Click on the white flags on the map to see the title of the project with links for more information, or scroll down to access project listings by country.
This map and project listing was created as part of an effort to enhance coordination of activities, encourage collaboration, and share knowledge between organizations working on SAFE. If you know of additional SAFE projects that are not shown here, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A SAFE project is anything that improves access to fuel or energy for cooking, lighting, heating, or powering among crisis-affected populations. By crisis-affected populations we mean refugees, internally displaced people (IDPs), or those affected by natural disaster or prolonged conflict.
Examples of SAFE interventions include providing solar lighting, manufacturing and/or distributing cookstoves and fuels, setting up mini grids for camp electrification, establishing and managing woodlots for fuel provision and environmental protection, improving protection mechanisms for women during firewood collection, and many others, provided they take place among crisis-affected populations.
