The objective of Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) is to ensure equitable access to assistance, protection, and services for internally displaced persons (IDPs) living in displacement sites, to improve their quality of life and dignity during displacement while seeking and advocating for durable solutions.

The Global Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Cluster is an Inter-Agency Standing Committee coordination mechanism that supports people affected by natural disasters and internally displaced people (IDPs) affected by conflict with the means to live in safe, dignified and appropriate settings.

The Global CCCM Cluster Support Team is comprised of staff from both IOM and UNHCR, with a wide range of skills including Coordination , Information Management, Protection and Capacity Building. The role of the team is to support CCCM initiatives at the global-level and to provide support and guidance to field-level CCCM Clusters.

Co-led by International Organization for Migration (IOM) and United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) for natural disasters and conflict-induced IDP situations respectively, the Global Camp Coordination and Camp Management Cluster benefits from the membership of many partner agencies, as well as support from academic and private sector partners. At the country level, Camp Coordination and Camp Management is a vital humanitarian mechanism as it facilitates protection and assistance to displaced populations.

The Strategic Advisory Group

Reflecting a positive renewed interest from cluster partners in the engagement with the cluster at all levels, and following recommendations made at the 2015 Global Retreat and in the Co-Leadership Assessment, the Global CCCM Cluster has established a Strategic Advisory Group (SAG). The objective is to enhance transparency and inclusiveness in the governance of the Global CCCM Cluster, and improve its ability to meet its global responsibilities.
