The term camp refers to a form of settlement in which refugees or Internally Displaced People (IDPs) reside and receive protection, humanitarian assistance and other services from host governments and humanitarian actors. A camp's location, size, design and duration are context-specific. Usually, a national or international non-governmental organisation or a national authority assumes the responsibility for the camp management. This section comprises tools for planning and programming, hygiene promotion and community mobilisation, water supply and sanitation relevant for different types of camps, including reception and transit centres, collective centres, planned camps and self-settled camps.
