Consultation for the Camp Management Standards in Cox's Bazaar, Bangladesh in January 2019

CCCM cluster partners with PHAP for Camp Management Standards consultation

Opportunity for practitioners across the sectors to learn more about the standards development process and give their input

The CCCM Cluster has embarked upon a consultation process to harmonize benchmarks and set standards that measure the outcome of tasks directly carried out by camp management teams. Agreeing upon standards are expected to help to clarify the role and build understanding of Camp Management; serve as an advocacy tool at the onset of an emergency as well as throughout a response; assist with capacity building; and to guide and harmonize camp management practices and operational delivery standards in the various contexts.

The process began in 2017 to develop these Camp Management Standards (CM Standards). Following a series of on-site consultations with camp managers and affected populations, the CCCM cluster is now partnering with the International Association of Professionals in Humanitarian Assistance and Protection (PHAP) for online consultations for stakeholders globally to provide their input and help refine the standards.

The first step of this consultation process is an initial survey, which looks at the overall scope and purpose of the standards. This is accompanied by a webinar, which will provide an introduction the technical area of camp management, as well as an overview of the standards development process. The deadline for completing the survey is 22 September – one day before the webinar, which takes place on 23 September. Highlights from the preliminary survey results will also be presented during the webinar.

This initial survey and webinar is planned to be followed by additional consultations on specific topics covered by the standards.

If you are either working in camp management or in an area which relates to camp manages (such as service provision in camps), we hope that you will engage in this consultation process and contribute your views and expertise.
