The 'Energy in Conflict and Emergency Relief' issue will be exploring the following questions: Energy access is a vital component of both immediate relief and of longterm rehabilitation and development interventions. How does the approach to energy delivery differ between a relief and a rehabilitation towards long term development context? How can energy access act as an entry point for relief and conflict resolution? How may it reduce or exacerbate the vulnerability of affected communities? How do communities find solutions to access energy services in extreme situation?
