Dubai International Humanitarian Aid & Development Conference & Exhibition (DIHAD)

Access to safe and sustainable energy is a basic human need. Without it, the forcibly displaced – particularly women and children – may be at increased risk and have less time to rebuild their lives.

The UNHCR is committed to address the energy needs of refugees, improve access to sustainable fuel, power health centers and utilize solar-powered lighting. Street lighting allows people to move around UNHCR camps in greater safety at night, particularly women and girls, and solar-powered lamps mean they can work, cook, study, socialize and continue with their lives long after the sun has gone down.

The refugees also contribute to the sustainable energy projects by building and managing the power stations, to become partners and not just recipients.

UNHCR is participating with its booth at the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) from 15th to 18th January 2018 to raise voices for sustainable lives for refugees.

Give your voice for refugees, so the world can hear theirs.
