Hi everyone,

We have worked on a tagging proposal for mapping refugee settlement and
camp boundaries and we would like to get your comments.

At the moment, refugee camp/settlement tagging is applied inconsistently,
and the use of the same boundaries and admin_levels as are used at the
national and subnational level creates issues in a number of situations,
including being hard to explain and thus limiting uptake among local
government officials and responders.

Unclarity on which set of boundaries take precedence, and how these affect
accountability in regards to population serve as indicators that this
system needs changing to reflect the growing need for consistently
representing refugees and displaced persons on a map.
