What do we know about humanitarian energy?

Humanitarianism and transitions to a low-carbon future podcast
Listen to the latest Talking Humanitarianism podcast episode ‘What do we know about humanitarian energy’ here!

In the third installment of our mini-series on humanitarianism and transitions to a low-carbon future, Ekatherina Zhukova and Sarah Rosenberg-Jansen, Research Fellow at the University of Oxford, explore what humanitarian energy is and how it operates in the contexts of displacement.

Based on Rosenberg-Jansen’s academic and practitioner work this episode discusses how humanitarian organisations are not the main providers of energy access in displacement contexts, but rather the main providers are refugees themselves through local markets and the private sector.

Zhukova and Rosenberg-Jansen also explore possible radical options and progressive pathways for humanitarian energy action and the differences in energy provision during short-term and long-term displacement.
