Thanks Jody. These were really useful. We were able to work this in during the Improve stage, particularly the element of the research related to the impact that solar has on educational outcomes, and the need to address concurrently other barriers to education not related to in-home lighting, women and girls' work load (taking time away from school), or Protection concerns. Thanks for helping make the project better during this last stage!

Good morning Patrick. Thanks a lot for the comment. I agree on the need in Nakivale. I'm not sure if you've ever seen the satellite imagery on the following report or not, but you should check it out:

Basically, in protracted settlements like Nakivale, year to year the reduction of tree cover is and around settlements is very clear from satellite imagery.

Hi Etienne. Thanks for getting in touch. We'd be interested in linking up on this! I reviewed your posting, and like best the 'untapped potential' perspective that you have, as this is something that ARC is really working towards in Bidi Bidi (and across the global operations) as well. We are trying more and more to play an enabling role given the amazing capacity and skills that refugees bring to the table.
