Abstract

Forced displacement of individuals and communities is not only a massive humanitarian concern but also a major development challenge, and these displacements are becoming increasingly protracted, many lasting over 5 years. There is a need to develop longer-term sustainable and efficient ways to support both the displaced and their hosts, so that the increased strain on the built environment can be managed.
