Papua New Guinea is exposed to a range of natural hazards - cyclones, floods, landslides, droughts, frost, earthquakes, tsunamis, king tides, volcanoes and seasonal fires. Climate change is expected to further exacerbate the risk of natural hazards by increasing the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) provides Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) assistance at scale, based on assessed needs and gaps in humanitarian programming. IOM WASH interventions include the provision of safe water, sanitation and hygiene promotion activities. IOM has a growing portfolio of WASH programmes worldwide.
This booklet provides basic information about site planning and gender-based violence risks in sites hosting displaced populations, and is targeted at field practitioners. It also provides practical guidance for measures which can be taken to reduce risks to affected populations in and around camps and sites. These guidelines are the result of work done by IOM for the Global Shelter Cluster.
Throughout 2016, IOM operations assisted 26.2 million beneficiaries globally*. The information captured in this document was consolidated from a data collection exercise, carried out in January 2017 and is wholly based on the responses obtained from each mission. A total of 88 country offices were contacted to complete a survey covering activities in shelter, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), Cash-Based Interventions (CBI), Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) operations and capacity building, sectoral coordination, and DTM. From those contacted, responses were received from 77 missions.
The primary goal of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) is to facilitate the safe, orderly, humane and dignified management of migration. In many countries this includes supporting families and individuals that have been internally displaced by natural or man-made disasters. In Pakistan, our work began with a r esponse to the Afghan refugee crisis, and has continued through the various challenges faced by the country since, including the 2005 earthquake and flooding in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
