How would you run a camp for displaced persons? Who would you hire to manage a site following a hurricane? If a conflict suddenly broke out and only your agency had access to a neighborhood where displaced people were staying, what would you do? What core activities would your team be responsible for? Where would you look for this information? And what standards would guide your interventions?
National authorities have the responsibility to prevent displacement and protect IDPs and other populations affected within their own country. But in crisis situations, they often receive support from the international humanitarian community in the form of lifesaving assistance, including the management of temporary displacement sites.
Join us for a webinar on 23 September to learn about the critical work of Camp Managers and the draft Camp Management Standards. You will hear from experienced Camp Managers who have been involved in the standards development process. It will also be an opportunity to provide your own input on the draft standards.
