ICEED Foundation

Membership Tier: Associate

The International Centre for Energy, Environment and Development (ICEED) Foundation is committed to the eradication of energy poverty and climate security for Nigeria's poor. We do this by providing the research and evidence base for policy and social reforms, in addition to implementing sustainable energy and climate smart programmes and projects. ICEED Foundation has over the years become Nigeria’s leading think tank on climate change and renewable energy. Together with some of the world’s leading resource centres, we have brought world class climate analysis, capacity building, and communication to Nigeria. ICEED Foundation has led some of the most important climate change and clean energy activities in Nigeria, including writing and promoting the Bill to Establish the National Climate Change Commission, leading the development of the Greenhouse Gas Emission Inventory for Nigeria, and writing the Renewable Energy Master Plan. Our key expertise is in policy reform and market development for expanding access to clean energy and climate change policy reform in Nigeria. ICEED Foundation supplies policy development support, programme design, project management, capacity building, and monitoring and evaluation to a wide range of Nigerian and international partners.

Why ICEED Joined the SAFE Humanitarian Working Group

Over the years, ICEED Foundation has been promoting access to sustainable fuels and energy for Nigeria's poor. In the past two years, we have deepened our engagements for safe access to fuels in humanitarian settings. ICEED Foundation is currently working with internally displaced people (IDPs) in Adamawa State to promote access to clean cooking solutions using locally available materials. The IDPs are being empowered through technical and business development skills acquisition on production and marketing of low-cost highly efficient wood cookstoves. The trained IDPs have been able to produce and disseminate over 1,000 stoves since the intervention began in 2015. In addition, there are planned collaborations with key stakeholders to facilitate access to solar lighting and efficient wood cookstoves for IDPs and vulnerable communities in Borno State. Membership in the SAFE Humanitarian Working Group will enhance opportunities for lessons learning and sharing.
