Conflict Sensitivity and Renewable Energy: A Case Study from Kenya’s Kakuma Refugee Camp
Nyakerario, R. and Mirumachi, N.
This report examines the need to consider conflict sensitivity when planning and carrying out renewable energy projects in energy-scarce areas, such as refugee camps. The report uses a case study from Kenya’s Kakuma Refugee Camp to look at the potential for renewable energy projects to lead to conflict or to exacerbate existing tensions. The authors argue that the issue should receive greater consideration in project planning and implementation.
