Afghanistan CCCM Working Group (WG)

Following significant increase in internal displacements, rapidly evolving humanitarian context and protection considerations in mid-August 2021, the HCT endorsed the creation of a dedicated Camp Coordination Camp Management (CCCM) Working Group (WG) at the national level on 14 October 2021. CCCM WG’s goal is not to establish or promote camps or sites, but rather to address the coordination, protection and advocacy needs of the partners regarding to the existing informal settlements and IDP sites.

The overall objective of the CCCM WG is to ensure a coordinated multisectoral response and protection provided for displaced people/communities (including newly internally displaced, returnees and protracted IDPs with life savings humanitarian needs) residing in informal settlements and urban communal settings, while advocating and looking for transitional and durable solutions. While it is critical to provide lifesaving basic services to displaced people living in informal settlements, CCCM WG partners are aware to not create pull factors.
