    Improving nutrition through enhanced energy access - Safe Access to Fuel and Energy Briefing Note 2018
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Most food needs to be cooked before being consumed. In protracted crises, acute emergencies or multi-hazard contexts, vulnerable populations often face significant risks to their health and nutrition due to inadequate access to the means of cooking their food. Providing access to reliable and affordable energy and improved cooking technologies should be an important part of nutrition-sensitive interventions. This is at the core of the FAO SAFE approach. A direct way to tackle these issues is by promoting the use of fuel-efficient stoves and fuel-saving cooking practices.

    Addressing energy needs in the context of disaster risks and climate change. Safe Access to Fuel and Energy Briefing Note
    Ensuring safe and sustainable access to energy for vulnerable populations in the face of natural hazards
    2018
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The increasing frequency and severity of disasters caused by natural hazards exerts pressure on existing energy resources. A key challenge in the coming decades is to ensure safe and sustainable access to energy for vulnerable populations in the face of these shocks, especially for populations who predominantly depend on solid biomass (e.g. fuelwood, charcoal and agricultural residues) for domestic energy needs.

    Strengthening the Water-Food-Energy-Ecosystems (WFEE) Nexus - Safe Access to Fuel and Energy Briefing Note 2018
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The multi-sectoral challenges of limited energy access in protracted crises include malnutrition, protection risks, gender-based violence, environmental degradation, unsustainable livelihoods, natural hazards and climate change. It is important to view these challenges not in isolation but in the broader frame of access to water, food, energy and ecosystem services. All four elements are crucial for human well-being and are intrinsically linked. A nexus approach will help to identify trade-offs and synergies, resulting in a more coordinated way of addressing these interlinked issues.
