Abstract
Refugees living in Kakuma refugee camp and Kalobeyei settlement in Northern Kenya rely primarily on humanitarian assistance to meet their basic needs and services, with limited levels of access to clean energy products.

The Market-Based Energy Access (MBEA) project was designed to drive a shift from a humanitarian, donation-based approach to market-based energy access for refugees in Kakuma refugee camp, Kalobeyei integrated settlement, and the surrounding host community. SNV implemented the pilot phase of the project between October 2017 and September 2019 with funding from the Energising Development (EnDev) programme. MBEA II launched in October 2019.

The recently published report Promoting Market Based Energy Access for Cooking and Lighting in Kakuma Refugee Camp: Experiences & Lessons learned presents the experiences and lessons learned from the MBEA pilot project with an overview of the project design, activities, results, lessons learnt, and key recommendations.
