Deforestation in Somalia has been devastating, with wood mainly being used for lighting and cooking, or to produce charcoal as the vast majority of Somalia’s population are low-income households are the using firewood.
Access to electricity is Somalia is more or less limited to the main urban areas and peri-urban areas through diesel generators. Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), as a secure modern cooking fuel, is still emerging and not accessible to the population outside of the major cities.
