Suitable, well-selected sites and soundly planned refugee settlements with adequate shelter and integrated, appropriate infrastructure are essential from the early stages of a refugee emergency, as they are life-saving and alleviate hardship. Accommodating refugees in emergencies may take place in host families/communities, or take the form of mass accommodation in existing shelters or organized camps. Initial decisions on the location of the camp should involve the host government as well as local authorities and communities. Likewise, layout should involve the refugees. This approach is necessary to avoid long-term protection issues, such as conflict with local communities; it will also help to ensure a safe environment for the refugees and the delivery of humanitarian assistance.
