The world's refugee camps could become better and healthier places if aid agencies and charities adopt a more sustainable approach to living conditions, according to a new report.
Roughly 90 percent of refugees living in camps lack access to electricity, with many also living without light at night, according to a report from Chatham House for the Moving Energy Initiative.
The report comes with the world in the midst of a mass migration, as people flee treacherous conditions across the planet. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), at the end of 2014 there were 19.5 million refugees globally.
"The problem goes beyond electricity," Glada Lahn, senior research fellow with the Energy, Environment and Resources Department at Chatham House, said in a release.
