    Women and children are often not only responsible for cooking but also tasked with collecting the fuel needed to prepare meals. This often involves walking long distances to collect fuelwood which exposes them to protection risks and a significant work burden, especially in protracted crises. As a result, less time is left for child care and productive activities that can provide additional income for the household. Improving access to sustainable energy is key to tackle these issues. At the same time, it is of crucial importance to include in-depth gender analyses when planning and implementing SAFE-related projects.

    Nearly 3 billion people rely on traditional biomass in order to meet their daily energy requirements. Protracted crises, particularly forced displacement settings, pose significant challenges in terms of securing and using energy safely and sustainably. Improved access to safe, sustainable, reliable and affordable energy can contribute significantly to the improvement of livelihoods in these communities. At the same time, opportunities for income-generating activities linked to the provision of energy services and technologies can enhance incomes and build resilience.

    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.
