Clean cooking in refugee camps and COVID-19: what lessons can we learn?
Briefing note which outlines lessons to be learned from implementing clean cooking in refugee camps in the context of the challenges posed by COVID-19. The briefing note discusses access to energy for cooking in refugee camps and the implications of lack thereof. It explores the impact COVID-19 has had on camp settings and outlines three examples of progress in clean cooking transitions that took place in 2020 in displaced communities situated in Rwanda, Uganda, and Bangladesh. The note argues that clean energy for cooking in displacement settings should be prioritised on the humanitarian agenda and highlights the importance of “partnerships, innovation, and the development of financially and environmentally sustainable models for the provision of clean cooking in displacement”.
