Surface water drainage and stormwater management are critical factors in safeguarding the health and surroundings of refugees or internally displaced persons (IDPs) in emergencies.
Globally, waterborne diseases and sanitation-related infections are both major contributors to public healthcare burdens and mortality. Effective drainage reduces breeding grounds for vectors (such as mosquitoes) and reduces the creation of muddy stagnant pools that harbour dangerous pathogens which cause a wide range of diseases.
The findings of this report suggest that a paradigm shift that takes into account the need for long-term, tailored drainage solutions in emergency situations is required.
