Globally, nearly 3 billion people rely on traditional biomass, such as fuelwood, charcoal or animal waste, as sources of fuel for cooking and heating. The multi-sectoral challenges related to energy access make it crucial to view the issue in a broader frame. FAO's work on Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) adopts a holistic, multi-faceted approach which takes into account the mutually reinforcing linkages between energy and nutrition, disaster risks and climate change, conflict, health, gender, protection and livelihoods. This publication aims to provide a comprehensive framework for mainstreaming energy access for crisis-affected populations as a key component of overall resilience-building.
