Camp coordination and camp management (CCCM)

Camp and camp-like settings are considered temporary measures of last resort, yet often endure for years if not decades. They require administration, management and coordination to ensure the delivery of assistance and services and to provide for the safety and protection of those in the camp. As such, camp management inherently involves attention to the full range of sectors.
