Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) is the technical sector that coordinates the temporary assistance and protection activities to displaced persons living in camps or camp-like settings (including all temporary communal shelter options such as formal camps, collective centres, communal buildings, spontaneous settlements, transit centres, evacuation centres, reception centres or those that may require relocation due to proximity to hazard, insecurity or eviction). It does this according to international and national legal protection frameworks to achieve minimum humanitarian standards through the participation of the affected population. CCCM is a cross-cutting sector that is both technical and social in its aim.
IOM CCCM is supporting the National Emergency Management Agency and the State Emergency Management Agency in managing camps and camp-like settings in North-East Nigeria since 2015. Currently, IOM is managing 78 camps in Adamawa and Borno States.
