Project detailsIn 2016, it was estimated that over 2.6 million refugees live in camps for over 5 years. In this context, they depend on humanitarian organizations for shelter, sanitary facilities, and more, services which can be expensive and often harmful to the environment. In this context, KOIS delivered a feasibility study to demonstrate the potential of setting up a multi-hundred million dollars leasing facility for the humanitarian sector with a primary focus on solar energy.
Designing better and more sustainable solutions for the humanitarian sector
A Blended finance solar-facility leasing mechanism
Humanitarian crises have become increasingly protracted in nature. Yet, humanitarian organisations have yearly budgets that prevent them from planning for multiple years. Innovative finance can help humanitarian agencies overcome this budgetary constraint and provide more cost-efficient and adapted services to displaced populations.

Today, ensuring a fast diagnosis of the high number of patients to avoid transmission is critical. Unfortunately, diagnoses are highly time-consuming and hard to get for people in more remote areas. In fact, most accurate diagnostics require drawing blood, sample preparation & lab work. This can result in a long time between testing & treatment. It also means patients cannot be followed-up at home and that carrying out fast & accurate testing in the field is very difficult.
In Indonesia, approximately 2.15M children live without their parents. Yet, 90% of them have at least one parent alive. The underlying reasons are numerous and complex, but they mostly relate to poverty and lack of access to social assistance.
A Development Impact Bond could help bring a solution to this issue. In this scope, KOIS supported two foundations with the structuring of a DIB to test an innovative, cost-efficient and scalable model of family separation prevention.
For too long, a lack of reliable power has prevented people in remote and rural communities from accessing the healthcare they need. KOIS is designing an innovative financing mechanism to scale up UNDP’s Solar for Health initiative. In fact, S4H helps governments in providing clean energy access for health facilities by installing PV systems.
