The Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) Workshop is an annual training event of approximately 60 participants which strengthens the knowledge and capacity of actors who provide – or are interested to provide – fuel and energy solutions to refugees, internally displaced people (IDPs), and other vulnerable populations. It is also designed to facilitate productive partnerships between humanitarian and non-humanitarian actors through peer learning.
The 2019 SAFE Workshop is a joint production of the Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) Humanitarian Working Group and the Global Plan of Action for Sustainable Energy Solutions in Situations of Displacement (GPA). It is hosted by the Clean Cooking Alliance and the UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), with support from the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad), Shell International, and the IKEA Foundation.Find Out More
