Camp Coordination and Camp Management

Internal Displacement

When Disaster Strikes, People Need Aid

IOM is active in emergencies induced by natural disasters and is currently active in 18 countries, including Colombia, Haiti, Nepal, Pakistan, Peru, the Philippines, Thailand and Timor-Leste. It directly benefits thousands of families by providing camp management support and strengthening the training capacities of local and national authorities. To increase the preparedness of national authorities, IOM as cluster lead for camp coordination and camp management (CCCM) has initiated efforts to adapt CCCM capacity-building and management tools to needs at the national level, most recently in Namibia, Pakistan, Colombia, Thailand, the Philippines and the Dominican Republic. In addition, IOM continues the refinement of data management systems and technological tools for displacement tracking and mapping.

Through camp management and displacement tracking, IOM aims to improve living conditions of displaced persons and migrants in transit, by monitoring displacement flows, facilitating the effective provision of assistance and protection in camps and camp-like settings, advocating for durable solutions and ensuring organized closure and phase-out of camps.
