Co-led by International Organization for Migration (IOM) and United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) for natural disasters and conflict-induced IDP situations respectively, the Global Camp Coordination and Camp Management Cluster benefits from the membership of many partner agencies, as well as support from academic and private sector partners. At the country level, Camp Coordination and Camp Management is a vital humanitarian mechanism as it facilitates protection and assistance to displaced populations.
Global CCCM Cluster actors ensure that systems are in place to meet minimal humanitarian standards: duplication is prevented and gaps address; using camps or camp-like settings as a last resort to provide assistance and protection to affected populations and exploring how to best provide services out of camps.
IOM continues to develop standards, policies and tools in close consultation with various partners at field level, particularly with focus on participation of women and youth in the community and governance structure in camp and camp-like settings as a mean towards prevention and mitigation of Gender-Based Violence (GBV)). Recognizing that many IDPs also seek refuge outside camps, the cluster is increasing its attention to urban and outside camo displacement.
IOM's CCCM activities seek to improve field response in displacement sites and links with host communities, prepare national authorities as well as cluster members and partners for improved humanitarian responses, contribute to disaster risk reduction, and strive for holistic community support raising accountability to affected populations.
One of the systems used by the IOM's CCCM teams is the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM). DTM is a key information management system, composed of a variety of tools, operations, and processes designed and develop to track and monitor populations in displacement during crises and inform the response of CCCM and other humanitarian actors.
