In complex emergencies, the humanitarian sys- tem tends to address issues of concern by focusing on individual sectors, such as health or food. However, the Women's Refugee Commis- sion has found that when it comes to cooking fuel, an integrated approach is essential. Recog- nizing the cross-sectoral nature of cooking fuel, the Women's Refugee Commission and the In- terAgency Standing Committee Task Force on Safe Access to Firewood and alternative Energy in Humanitarian Settings (SAFE task force) de- veloped a framework outlining the key fuel-related challenges and solutions across eight sectors of humanitarian response. This comprehensive and holistic approach to all eight sectors is necessary to ensure that displaced women and their fami- lies have safe access to appropriate cooking fuel. Below is information on the camp coordination and camp management sector.
The camp coordination and camp management (CCCM) sector is meant to improve living condi- tions for refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) living in camps. It aims to ensure that they are provided with assistance and protection and that any gaps in services are identified and ad- dressed. Camp managers are also responsible for working with refugee leaders, host governments and local communities to mitigate potential con- cerns or incidents regarding access to land and natural resources.
