Description

This booklet on site planning and the reduction of gender-based violence provides practical guidance for measures which can be taken to reduce risks to affected populations around camps and sites.It is written for all people who are involved in the planning and maintenance of sites, as it is not always possible to deploy experienced site planners, and the majority of camps and sites come into being ‘spontaneously’.For further guidance on the role of camps in different types of programming, see Transitional Settlement: Displaced Populations, Transitional Settlement and Reconstruction After Disaster, and Urban Shelter Guidelines, among other resources.
