Access to Energy in Refugee Camps in Rwanda


The Renewable Energy for Refugees (RE4R) project, led by Practical Action and UNHCR, assessed energy access in Gihembe, Kigeme, and Nyabiheke refugee camps in Rwanda. During the assessment phase of the project, Practical Action conducted hundreds of surveys, interviews, and focus group discussions with camp residents, business owners, community leaders, and organizational staff to help identify the most important energy issues in the camps. This policy brief presents the main findings and recommendations from the RE4R assessments and the four renewable energy interventions being implemented in the three camps. The full report, featuring detailed analysis energy issues in the three camps, will be available in early 2020.
