The Fuel Network, the international network on household energy was established by the Women’s Refugee Commission in June 2007. The purpose of the network is to be a key multi-sectoral mechanism for NGOs, researchers, technical experts,international organizations, the private sector, government agencies,donors and others to share, receive and discuss information regarding household energy-related initiatives and technological innovations for use in humanitarian settings worldwide, including both conflicts and natural disasters. As such, it helps to identify and institutionalize solutions to the security, environmental, technological, health and other concerns that arise around firewood collection and household energy use and supply in humanitarian settings worldwide.
