Webinar (11/14): lighting needs in humanitarian settings

On Thursday, November 14, staff from Lighting Global will participate in a webinar on Sustainable Energy for Powering Household and Community Lighting Needs in Humanitarian Settings. This is the third of a four-part series on sustainable energy in humanitarian settings jointly organized by the International Committee of the Red Cross, energypedia UG, and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research.

Representatives from Lighting Global and Oxfam will discuss which quality solar products are on the market for household use, and how humanitarian actors can assess which lighting solutions for households and communities are needed. In two case studies, Practical Action and Mercy Corps will share their experiences from a community needs assessment in Rwanda, and from delivering quality solar products in Afghanistan.

The webinar will be held on Thursday, November 14 from 3-4:30 pm CET / 6-7:30 am PST (check your local time), and is free and open to the public.
