In this article the author discusses access to cooking fuel for refugees and internally displaced persons in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is noted that non-governmental agencies in the Congo are in the forefront of promoting initiatives that allow safe access to fuelwood sources. A number of topics are addressed including injuries suffered by girls from improperly tended fires, the development of world-wide guidance on this issue by the Women's Refugee Commission and the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the creation of special fuels as an alternative to fuelwood.
