Over the course of 2020, the World Food Program (WFP) and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), with the support from the Modern Energy Cooking Services (MECS) Programme, developed and piloted the Energy Delivery Models (EDM) training programme aiming to equip humanitarian project managers with the knowledge and design skills to assess energy demands and design sustainable energy access programmes in partnership with local communities to meet their energy access needs. The pilot, delivered in three Cohorts running between November 2020 and October 2021, saw 55 humanitarian and development practitioners trained on the fundamentals of energy access and supported in developing transformative energy access projects with the communities they work with.
Further information about the EDM programme along with the e-learning training materials can be accessed here. Find out more about the training journey and impacts of the EDM programme, along with next steps in the blog by the UNITAR team.
