CCCM Cluster and PHAP webinar on camp standards and the COVID-19 response

How should camp managers apply technical standards and strengthen COVID-19 prevention and response measures?

The risks that the novel coronavirus disease or COVID-19 presents to populations living in refugee camps and camp-like settings is growing. Camp managers are working quickly to adjust their programs to accommodate social distancing while continuing to communicate with communities and working with partners to improve communal sanitation. On 2 April, the Global Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Cluster and PHAP will organize a webinar to discuss COVID-19 prevention measures critical to the work of camp managers and others working in displacement settings. 

During this online session, you will hear from WASH specialists, a representative from Sphere − who have recently released guidance for how the Sphere Handbook can help guide humanitarian staff in the response to the COVID-19 outbreak − as well as experienced camp managers and program staff who have recently been involved in setting up special measures to prevent the spread of disease and develop key messages for populations living in temporary settlements. 

This webinar is the first in a series of webinars and discussions to be organized by the CCCM Cluster on COVID-19, focusing on how to manage CCCM services during emergencies.

This webinar is free to attend.
