This Global Plan of Action for Sustainable Energy Solutions in Situations of Displacement (GPA) was introduced at the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development in 2018. This is a non-binding document based on extensive exchanges among various stakeholders from humanitarian and development organizations, the private sector, governments, academia, not-forprofit organizations and others, starting with the Berlin ‘Energy for Displaced People’ conference on 15–16 January 2018. During this conference, 120 practitioners were brought together to kick off the development of this Global Plan of Action to enhance humanitarian response for displaced people through accelerated access to sustainable energy solutions.The recommendations developed by the stakeholders will build the framework for a work plan with concrete activities to improve the energy situation for the benefit of displaced people, host communities, and implementing agencies.
