In the past number of years, a number of global initiatives have emerged in to address issues around sustainability and access to energy in humanitarian settings. These include:
- The Global Plan of Action for Sustainable Energy in Situations of Displacement.
- The Environmental Emergencies Centre (EEC) hosted by the UNEP/OCHA Joint
- Environment Unit (JEU)
- Global Shelter Cluster Environment Community of Practice
- Greening the Blue
The creation of the Connectivity, Sustainability and Clean Energy in Displacement Working Group will raise awareness of these initiatives, their tools and expertise to CCCM practitioners supporting CCCM programs and encouraging CCCM experiences and challenges to feed back into global discussions on policy and advocacy.
