In this strategic field, the goal is a dual one:
- Optimize energy management in MSF missions to make savings and reduce their energy footprint;
- Reflect on the use of renewable energies, solar in particular, with the aim of increasing project autonomy.
Collaboration between the Foundation and MSF started in 2012 in the framework of the combat against cholera in the Democratic Republic of Congo, with rehabilitation and extension of the potable water network in the town of Kalemie, in Katanga, to provide access to better-quality water for 90,000 people.
Collaboration in the field since 2012
In a second phase, an "Aquaforce 500" emergency water production unit was tested then installed in two South-Sudanese refugee camps catering for more than 40,000 people in northern Uganda.
