During a humanitarian crisis, the incidence of violence against women and girls is amplified and they often face increased protection risks such as sexual violence, trafficking, and early and forced marriage. The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) plays a crucial role in addressing protection needs of women and girls at the camp level through its role as the cluster lead for Camp Coordination and Camp Management and has launched a cluster-specific initiative to address violence against women and girls in emergencies and natural disasters. With the support of DFATD and other donors, IOM is: (1) improving its ability to identify and address gender-based violence in camps; (2) establishing protection and gender-based violence focal points in camp management operations at the country level; and (3) providing training and workshops for partners working in camp settings on the prevention of gender-based violence in camps.
