Germany Commits 21 Million EUR Sustainable Energy Transition in Displacement Settings

This week the German Federal Foreign Office formally committed 21 million EUR to support the sustainable energy transition in displacement settings. The new Decarbonising Humanitarian Energy (DHE) Programme will reduce the costs and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with delivering critical humanitarian assistance in five countries in the Sahel Region. This funding forms the initial investment in the Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) and will provide multi-year support for scaling up sustainable energy solutions for organisations serving displaced people and host communities. The DHE MPTF will be implemented by the GPA Coordination Unit at UNITARNORCAP, and UNDP, through its Green Energy Team, Bureau for Programme and Policy Support and its country offices.
