Responsibilities

  • CCCM Rapid Response Team (RRT)  - Members of the CCCM Rapid Response Team can be deployed at short notice to support operations requiring CCCM expertise, trainings, strategy development or any other need for short to medium length missions. All costs are borne by the Global Cluster.
  • Capacity building
  • CCCM diagnostic and support missions: The Global CCCM Cluster, on request by the field or by its own appraisal of CCCM needs, may undertake; diagnostic missions to appraise the situation, identify areas in need of support and propose appropriate action; or technical support missions in response to an already identified or existing technical issue by the field and recommend action. In either situation, the support can take a strategic or operational shape depending on the needs on the ground.
  • Guidance and tools:  Rapid field technical support is remotely available daily through telephone and email. Field operations and others in urgent need of support can directly call the CCCM team at IOM and UNHCR offices for immediate support. CCCM also develops and disseminates tools to field operations, partners and donors.

Participation in Displacement Working Group

Although women and children often form most displaced populations living in camps or camp-like settings, their needs are not always well-represented in camp governance structures. Furthermore, persons with disabilities in displacement contexts still find themselves on the edge of society and are often stigmatized, marginalized or even live completely in hiding. Hence, community engagement with these and other vulnerable groups within camp communities require targeted and appropriate approaches with a focus on developing capacities of field teams. Ensuring meaningful participation of all groups of a displaced population in decision making processes in camp governance structures is therefore an essential pillar of good camp management. Only when all groups’ voices are heard and considered, the assistance provided to them will be given considering these needs, capacities and expectations.

The creation of the Working Group sees its roots in the break-out session on participation at the 2018 Global CCCM Cluster retreat that brought to light the need to consolidate the different Camp Management approaches while achieving equal and meaningful participation from the onset of humanitarian responses. The working group starts in July 2019 and will last until July 2020, with possibility of extension. The Working Group will be composed of different CCCM actors and operational expert representatives from UN agencies and NGOs who expressed their interest to actively participate and contribute to the objectives of the Working Group. Participation is open to both humanitarian and development actors who wish to share learning and best practices that might be applicable to the CCCM focus that will be applied to investigate participation of vulnerable groups in displacement.

The Working Group will initially be co-chaired by the International Organization for Migration and the Norwegian Refugee Council and the chairmanship of the working group will be discussed annually at the Global CCCM Cluster Retreat.
