Camp coordination and camp management (CCCM) is a central part of disaster response and early recovery processes. CCCM covers the processes through which services for displaced persons are coordinated within a single camp or across multiple camps. This includes transit centres, evacuation centres, or longer term camps, such as Dadaab refugee complex in Kenya.
Inclusion for people with diverse SOGIE in CCCM is an important concern: services must be developed with diverse SOGIE populations in mind, which means training staff to be attentive and aware of diverse SOGIEs; engaging with diverse SOGIE CSOs and community leaders; and ensuring people with diverse SOGIE will be able to access food, shelter, medical care, registration processes and move freely about the camp without increased security concerns.
The resources available in the CCCM category cover an array of topics including: SOGIE-inclusivity in registration processes; protection challenges for diverse SOGIE populations in refugee camps; youth engagement as part of diverse SOGIE inclusivity; and resources on more specific issues such as shelter, WASH and GBV.
These resources have been compiled to enable humanitarian practitioners—especially CCCM cluster coordinators and experts—to better understand the challenges and opportunities for diverse SOGIE inclusion in CCCM.
