Innovation Norway’s Humanitarian Innovation Programme in collaboration with NORCAP/Norwegian Refugee Council welcome businesses, humanitarians, experts and investors for a seminar on solar solutions and cash transfer programming in humanitarian contexts.

This event aims to bring innovators, humanitarian organizations, energy experts, and cash expertise together with private sector, to:

  • Discuss how access to clean cooking solutions or solar power in humanitarian settings can be supported with cash-based interventions (CBI).
