Monitoring risks & contingency planning

Preparing for an emergency involves risk monitoring, scenario-based contingency planning, and establishing how to deliver assistance and protection. UNHCR leads the Protection Sector Working Group and co-leads  the Camp Coordination Camp Management/Shelter & Non-Food Item Sectors in Nigeria with the International Organisation for Migration (IOM).

UNHCR works within these sectors to support the government’s efforts.

Coordination serves UNHCR’s mandate to find solutions for people forced to flee. It is an important part of our work.

It allows us as a humanitarian community to avoid duplication of efforts.
