Coventry University carried out research into sustainable drainage in camps for refugees or internally displaced persons. The objectives of the programme are to create, assess and disseminate findings concerning sustainable greywater management systems and other aspects of surface water management in camps.

This report gathers the strands of information gleaned from a regional site visit to existing camps in the Dohuk locality made between 13th and 18th April 2017. It sets out the key findings from the visit, drawing out common drainage and related environmental or community issues applicable in all camps and identifying challenges and opportunities for intervention specific to individual camps, setting out the information required for each. In addition it suggests more general avenues for related practical research. Notes are included on the research environment and priorities suggested for the next stage of the project.
