This paper reports on the scoping stage of a practical toolkit being developed to support the application of surface water management practices in humanitarian contexts. The toolkit is predominately aimed at refugee and IDP camps for displaced people and aims to address the lack of suitable guidance in this area (Abbot et al. 2017). Effective surface water management will protect the health, dignity and wellbeing of communities in humanitarian crises. In developing the toolkit, the authors recognise the challenges posed in creating a document that can effectively support an audience with diverse interests and roles within humanitarian contexts. This will be a key focus for the next stage of the project.
