Established in 1951, IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization providing services to governments and migrants in the field of migration. With 169-member states and offices in more than 100 countries, IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all.
As an important function of its mandate, IOM is the Cluster Lead Agency for Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) for natural disaster-induced displacement situations under the 2005 IASC Humanitarian Reform. In line with the commitments to the global Call to Action on Protection Against Gender-Based Violence in Emergencies, and in accordance with the IASC Guidelines for Integrating Gender-Based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action (2015), IOM has been working to improve GBV prevention and risk mitigation in Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) operations worldwide. Seeking to consolidate and expand upon pilot initiatives, IOM’s interventions are designed to reduce vulnerabilities to GBV at the onset of emergencies, by building the capacity of field practitioners to identify, prevent and mitigate GBV risks; providing innovative tools to improve the management of sectoral responses and coordination of service provision in response to identified risks; enhancing operational collaboration between CCCM, GBV and other specialized Protection actors; and improving women’s participation in camp governance structures.
Under the overall supervision of the head of Preparedness and Response Division (PRD) and the direct supervision of the Global CCCM Cluster Coordinator and the CCCM/Protection Officer, the successful candidate will be responsible for supporting the CCCM team in development, implementation and review of tools and guidance being used by CCCM cluster/actors; and support the overall improvement of the quality and impact of IOM CCCM operations; with a particular focus on Protection issues, including Protection mainstreaming, Disability inclusion, Child Protection and GBV.
