This paper discusses energy programming targeting off-grid communities in development and humanitarian contexts. By using a portfolio of programmes built up across the world by Mercy Corps, the authors apply agency experience to consider the contributions made toward climate adaptation and resilience building. They conclude that there is a clear link between community-based energy security and climate resilience building, and they encourage global uptake of holistic and long term perspectives on energy security, combining the themes of climate change, economic development and environmental stability.
