Humanitarian Dialogue: Cooking in Crisis
(Morning Informal) Energy access is a critical and under-served need among the 128 million people in need of humanitarian assistance today, including refugees and internally displaced persons. Most of the food provided by humanitarian agencies must be cooked before it can be eaten, but efficient cookstoves and fuel are rarely provided. In this open session, interested Forum participants will have the opportunity to learn and ask questions of veteran humanitarian organizations and pioneers in the private sector who are collaborating to bring cooking solutions to crisis-affected people. The discussion will address key challenges and innovative approaches to operating in humanitarian settings, as well as provide newcomers to the sector with resources to learn more.
