    Building resilience through Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE)
    Moving towards a comprehensive SAFE Framework

    Globally, nearly 3 billion people rely on traditional biomass, such as fuelwood, charcoal or animal waste, as sources of fuel for cooking and heating. The multi-sectoral challenges related to energy access make it crucial to view the issue in a broader frame. FAO’s work on Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) adopts a holistic, multi-faceted approach which takes into account the mutually reinforcing linkages between energy and nutrition, disaster risks and climate change, conflict, health, gender, protection and livelihoods. This publication aims at providing a comprehensive framework for FAO to mainstream energy access for crisis-affected population in the resilience programming.

    Northeastern Nigeria | Assessing FAO’s fuel-efficient stove intervention
    A post-distribution assessment to enhance Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) - Improving Safe Access to Fuel and Energy in northeastern Nigeria

    Armed conflict in northeastern Nigeria – Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States – has driven millions from their homes and uprooted agriculture‑based livelihoods. In worst affected Borno, poor energy access has exposed vulnerable people to a number of challenges linked to food insecurity and malnutrition, deforestation, protection risks and health risks. When using inefficient energy technologies, such as open fires, the demand for these energy resources is high. In response, FAO is implementing Safe Access to Feul and Energy, following a three-way programmatic approach, namely: (i) reducing energy demand by promoting fuel-efficient technologies; (ii) increasing energy supply through sustainable forestry management practices; and (iii) promoting safe and sustainable livelihoods. With the support of Norway and in partnership with the International Centre for Energy, Environment and Development, FAO provided 5 000 people (IDPs, returnees and host community members) with locally produced cooking stoves in Maiduguri, Jere and Konduga local government areas of Borno. To evaluate the impact of the stove distribution (December 2018), FAO undertook a household survey. Key findings included improved access to energy, high adoption of the stoves, and reduced (i) fuel use and costs, (ii) risk of physical harm to women and girls and (iii) health risks.

    Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) Toolbox 2016

    This user guide describes how to use the Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) Toolbox: Woodfuel Assessment in Displacement Settings for supporting field-based actors who are directly involved in the management of natural resources and protection of crisis-affected populations. This tool provides guidance for assessing, monitoring and planning energy-related interventions. The SAFE Toolbox is an Excel-based application, which supports the systematic collection and analysis of multi-sectoral field data on energy needs, woodfuel resources and associated risks and challenges faced by people in displacement settings. The SAFE Toolbox is intended to support the identification of the baseline situation in which no intervention to address the energy needs of displaced and host communities has been carried out. The tool can be used to establish the baseline setting and to develop alternative scenarios to compare against the baseline. The user can simulate alternative scenarios in which improved cooking technologies and new tree plantations are introduced to increase energy efficiency, reduce energy consumption and improve woodfuel supply. These scenarios facilitate the planning of interventions to contribute to safe and sustainable access to energy for cooking and to reduce environmental impacts and other associated risks in displacement settings.
