The report assesses changes in woodfuel availability and multi-sectoral challenges associated with woodfuel in displacement settings. To seek an effective response to the diverse challenges and to contribute to building the resilience of vulnerable populations in emergencies and protracted crises, the starting point in northeast Nigeria is this woodfuel supply and energy demand assessment, which provides a baseline for designing comprehensive interventions that take into account the energy needs of affected populations. The desired outcome of the SAFE approach is to “satisfy the fuel and energy needs for cooking, heating, lighting, and powering in a safe and sustainable manner, without fear or risk to health, well-being, and personal security of crisis-affected populations”. The multi-sectoral nature of the SAFE approach has the potential to enhance protective livelihoods.
