Please join the Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) Steering Committee as we discuss the needs and challenges of access to fuel and energy in humanitarian settings, the disproportionate impact it has on women and girls, and best practices in addressing these challenges.

This event will provide an opportunity to educate leaders about the crucial role of fuel and energy access in assuring the health and wellbeing of crisis-affected populations, and will lay out potential strategies for ensuring that these issues are accurately and effectively integrated into the new post-2015/SDG framework.
