Title
African Refugee Energy Workshop
Authors (non HEDON members)
Matthew Owen, Stephen Gitonga
Abstract
In November 1995 ITDG organized a three-day workshop funded by UNEP on refugee camps in East Africa.

Refugees are a distinct group of energy consumers. Not only do they suffer the well known problems of health, labour and finance associated with biomass use, they also bring with them the threat of significant environmental degradation and competition with indigenous populations in meeting their fuel demands. In recognition of this problem, relief and development agencies are becoming involved in energy and forest activities around refugee camps. Some of the experiences reported at the East African workshop may be useful for camp organisations elsewhere.
