Cooking in the Margins: Exploring the Role of Liquefied Petroleum Gas for Refugees in Low-income Countries
James Haselip, Kimball Chen, Hanaan Marwah & Elisa Puzzolo
Framed by the UN's 'Clean Energy Challenge', this article focuses on the role of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) in delivering clean cooking solutions for refugees and host communities in resource-poor countries. Notwithstanding scepticism towards LPG among the majority of Western donors, the authors summarise evidence to indicate the latent market demand for LPG among refugees, as a cleaner, safer and lower-carbon technology option compared to the baseline scenario in most circumstances.
