resources of IDP women. While previous mandate-holders have raised
awareness about the importance of gender and displacement, he plans to
emphasize particularly the issue of violence against women – an issue which is
clearly important in this region. He also plans to engage with women’s
organizations in seeking ways that issues of displacement can be mainstreamed
in their work.

4. IDPs Outside Camps

A fourth area of concern is the issue of IDPs who live outside camps and
settlements – an issue that has been discussed by the IASC. While there is not
much research, Mr. Beyani stressed the fact that it is likely that those who are
not in camps do not receive adequate assistance and protection. In addition,
there are also specific challenges for IDPs living in urban settings. Land rights,
housing, and tenancy agreement for IDPs outside camps are challenges in terms
of how relief actors can provide protection to IDPs when they are mixed in the
local population.

2.10.4. Evaluation and Closing The workshop was evaluated using a questionnaire and closed thereafter.
