Over the years, the roles in which CCCM and CCCM approaches can be applied in urban and out-of-camp settings have become increasingly prominent.

This session will start off with the presentation of CCCM Cluster’s position paper on Area-based Approach, followed by a round table discussion. Participants are invited to reflect on how CCCM activities and skillsets are applied to area-based approaches in humanitarian response to address some of the pertinent challenges in camp-like settings as well as dispersed contexts. Through sharing of experiences from Yemen, Afghanistan and Iraq, the session will also provide opportunities for participants to become familiar with on-going ABA operations and join in on the planning of the ABA Working Group going forward.

By the end of this session, participants will have:

  • Learnt about the CCCM Cluster position on ABA, and other perspectives on the topic
  • Learnt about CCCM ABA programming from the experience of Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq
  • Contributed to the development of ABA WG workplan for 2021
