To support the entry of private energy firms to the Kakuma-Kalobeyei area as part of the KKCF, it is imperative that market-oriented data be available and packaged appropriately to make the commercial case for energy solutions for mini-grids, SHS, cooking, and productive use. In addition to making the commercial case, the practical steps toward entry of a private firm to the area should also be addressed (how to access land, what role would RAS or UNHCR play, if any, etc.). The assessment will cover Kakuma Town and Kakuma Camp, Kalobeyei Town and Kalobeyei Settlement. More specifically, the work conducted on mini-grid, SHS and productive use will cover Kakuma Camp and Town while the work on energy for cooking will cover both Kakuma Camp and Town and Kalobeyei Settlement and Town.

Since the Great Recession, trade growth hovered around 3 percent per year, down from the 7 percent growth rates for the two decades preceding the crisis. This year world trade is expected to grow slightly above 1 percent. We find that policy uncertainty might account for almost half of the slowdown of world trade growth in 2019.
