Operations and Emergencies

Throughout the protracted crisis management in Georgia IOM has assisted the internally displaced through various initiatives such as the delivery of non-food items, emergency shelter repair, mental health and psycho-social support, income generation and small business development, including the support to particularly vulnerable groups, such as mine victims.

In close cooperation with the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia and the International Disaster Response Network IOM promotes the Migration Crisis Operational Framework (MCOF) and Community Based Disaster Management (CBDM) to tackle migration aspects of the crisis more effectively.

IOM co-leads the Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) cluster together with the UNHCR and is also a member of the Health, Shelter and Early Recovery clusters. IOM's CCCM activities seek to prepare national authorities as well as cluster members and partners for improved humanitarian responses, contribute to disaster risk reduction, and strive for holistic community support.
