Established in 1951, IOM is leading inter-governmental organization providing services to governments and migrants in the field of migration. With 146 member states and offices in more than 100 countries, IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. As an important function of its mandate, IOM is the Cluster Lead Agency for Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) for natural disaster-induced displacement situations under the 2005 IASC Humanitarian Reform. The CCCM Cluster convenes a range of UN, NGO and other actors to meet the needs of the camp management and coordination sector, by producing key interagency tools, building capacity, and developing shared advocacy and policy.

Within the IASC Cluster response, gender is identified as one of four of priority cross cutting issues to be integrated in all forms of humanitarian assistance. In line with its responsibilities as a CCCM lead, IOM must ensure that its operations are planned and implemented in a way that benefits all sectors of the affected populations, based upon an analysis of their specific needs, rights and capacities. IOM is launching an initiative to strengthen gender-responsive programming in CCCM, particularly in the area of Gender-based Violence (GBV). GBV is an international public health and human rights issue that requires utmost attention in the contexts of natural disasters and conflict, as emergencies exacerbate the vulnerabilities of certain groups of people –generally women and girls. Through a collaborative approach, the CCCM cluster is developing strategies to prevent and better respond to GBV in emergency situations and protect vulnerable populations of further harm.

4. Provide guidance and remote support to camp managers and GBV focal points in order to strengthen field-level response to GBV, women protection, and child protection issues. 5. Facilitate the creation of SOPs between CCCM and GPC to streamline the transfer of information from CCCM camp managers/GBV focal points to the GBV Area of Responsibility (AoR).

6. Assist the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) team in the development, adaptation and analysis of DTM tools and data with a focus on GBV and protection issues. 7.
