Dear Blue Blue,

These past weeks, we've witnessed the destruction of hurricanes and flooding from South Asia to the Caribbean. As we all know, it will take not only days but weeks, months, and sometimes years to fully re-build from these disasters, and at the moment, the most urgent needs are food, water, and shelter. In the articles below, you'll find one on the importance of local aid groups to disaster relief. This brings to mind also the importance of resilience and of supporting local efforts to increase resilience in communities. While disasters can be unpredictable and entail a devastating loss of lives and livelihoods, there are also ways that preparation can help communities. In the article below on Puerto Rico, the authors note that Hurricane Irma could leave it without electricity for months - this points out the central issue of infrastructure and government-level preparation. For remote, rural communities, the same issue exists, albeit at a smaller level: how to prepare, how to survive - and if there's time, how to preserve existing infrastructure?

On a related topic, this week, Smart Villages attended the "Energy and Equality" conference held by the Low Carbon Energy for Development Network (LCEDN) at Durham University. This is an apt moment to discuss energy and equality, and equality in general as often the most vulnerable people and communities are affected by disasters. Molly Hurley-Depret of Smart Villages chaired two excellent panels that focused on Market Solutions and featured speakers working closely with community-based energy entrepreneurs. Stay tuned for our September webinar with LCEDN, which will feature several excellent speakers from this conference. 

Quick update: We'll be back with more news you can use on October 4th! The newsletter will also move to a twice-per-month schedule - but no worries: it will have the same great content!
