Make sure that consistent information at the right level of disaggregation is available on both country of asylum and country of origin locations. You may need to establish basic camp address systems in a camp if none exist.
This is a guide about "Emergency Registration in Refugee Operations" for UNHCR
I need to know please what are "camp address systems"?

    Is there any more context? My first thought was a loudspeaker system, as London Calling suggests, so that one can address (speak to) everyone in camp. But it could also be a way of assigning street names, or numbers, and housing unit (tent? barracks?) names or numbers so that people living in the camp can be found when needed, and tracked.
