Rural Settings

Rural communities commonly depend more on agricultural or pastoral livelihoods than their urban counterparts and usually have less access to community infrastructure. When displaced communities settle in rural areas, they reside in host villages or in informal, dispersed self-settlements outside of camps and cities. In host villages, they often live amongst local households or on land or properties owned by the local people, particularly when the displaced and the local communities share cultural or religious ties. This section comprises tools for planning and programming, hygiene promotion and community mobilisation, water supply and sanitation relevant for urban settings of human displacement.
