Training on Minimum Standards for Displacement Sites

Module 2: Using the Minimum Standards in practice

This module provides an overview of how to apply the Minimum Standards while managing and supporting populations in displacement sites in Ukraine and neighbouring countries.

Module description

This module provides an opportunity for participants to consider how the Minimum Standards for Camp Management (the Minimum Standards) and key concepts in managing collective centres and other displacement sites apply in their specific context and that of the Ukraine humanitarian crisis response more broadly. It explores how the Minimum Standards can be applied alongside other complementary standards and explains when and how each of these sets of standards apply.

Participants can choose to take the module as a stand-alone overview of the Minimum Standards or can choose to participate in any of the additional modules in the series to deepen their understanding of specific aspects of the Minimum Standards. There are no pre-requisites for attending the module, but it is recommended that learners are familiar with the purpose and core content of the Minimum Standards. Learners who wish to deepen their understanding before participating in this module are encouraged to watch the video 'Supporting displaced populations: An introduction to the minimum standards for displacement sites'.

This module is a facilitated module which uses participatory methods. It is expected that learners will participate in discussions and activities in order to deepen their understanding of the concepts that are discussed. Participants will be offered opportunities to share relevant personal experiences and reflections to benefit their own and others' learning. At the end of the module, participants will be provided with a summary of key messages from the module and a list of relevant resources.

Module objectives

  • Describe how the Minimum Standards for Camp Management apply in the context of Ukraine humanitarian response,

  • Explain the different purposes of the key actions, indicators and guidance notes,
  • Describe why it is important to contextualise the indicators and put this into practice for the Ukraine humanitarian response,
  • Assess ways in which you can use the Minimum Standards to support your work in the Ukraine humanitarian response,
  • Identify your own next steps for improving your knowledge of and ability to apply the Minimum Standards to support people in displacement sites.
