EEG Energy Insight: Conflict sensitivity: understanding and applying best practice in the energy sector

In order to manage the conflict risks emerging from investments in electricity projects and to contribute to building peaceful societies, investors and project managers need to have a clear understanding of what conflict sensitivity means in the context of the energy sector, as well as the ability to monitor and improve the performance of their interventions in this regard.

This paper aims to develop the understanding and enhance the application of best practice when implementing large-scale electricity projects in fragile and conflict-affected situations (FCAS). It provides a practical complement to 'Energy, Fragility & Conflict' an earlier EEG paper which focused on the relationship between energy, fragility, and conflict from an academic perspective, with the aim of supporting the uptake of conflict sensitivity best practice.
