Emergencies and disaster management

IOM is assisting Papua New Guinea (PNG) in enhancing its preparedness and response capacity to migration crises, as well as facilitating climate change adaptation and linking disaster management to development.  In line with its mandate, IOM’s Emergencies and Disaster Management programme in PNG aims to reduce the effects of natural and man-made disasters on local communities through three pillars of community resilience, coordination and capacity building. Operating through its field offices throughout the country IOM is focusing on the following areas:

 

Prevention

Preparedness

Response

  • Leading the shelter and non-food items (NFIs) cluster in the country and integrating camp coordination and camp management (CCCM) tools/methodologies (as CCCM Global cluster co-lead).
  • Emergency humanitarian assistance through rapid assessments, emergency shelter, NFIs, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), food security, protection and relocation.
  • Tracking displacement during crises.
