Project title and Identification: Camp Coordination and Camp Management All people of concern for UNHCR & CCCM Cluster i.e. internally displaced persons (IDP), IDP returnees, and IDPs hosting communities
Aden (AOR): Targets are all sites in the governorates of Shabwah, Abyan, Taizz, Al Hudaydah, Al Dhale'e, Hadramaut.
Following the outbreak of the conflict in Yemen on 26 March 2015, a major humanitarian crisis has developed leading to the displacement of populations across the country especially in areas with active military actions. According to the Displacement Tracking Movement 3.6 million have been displaced due to conflict since March 2015, dispersed across 21 governorates. For the same period, the DTM has identified 1.2 million returnees. The conflict has also severely affected the host community and placed major strain on the already meager resources and public services. According to the 2019 HRP, Al Hudaydah and Taizz governorates are considered the most affected areas of conflict displacement. This is largely attributed to the neighboring active conflicts in Al Mokha District of Taizz Governorate and Midi District of Hajjah Governorate. The majority of the current IDP population of Al Hudaydah hub governorates at present live with host communities (either rented accommodations or with relatives). However, as the crisis continues, and the absorption capacity and coping mechanisms of host families dwindle, a significant number of IDP families have been forced to move into schools, hotels, government buildings and other empty buildings, turning them into collective centers. Some of these centers are overcrowded, in severe disrepair or damaged. At the end of 2019, prospects for return are limited by continued insecurity in some areas, widespread destruction and limited availability of services in areas of return. There are ongoing Housing, Land and Property (HLP) and documentation issues contributing to communal tensions. In 2020, those remaining in displacement are expected to continue to be in need of protection and assistance, as families and communities grapple with post-conflict realities. On the basis of assessed
needs, and working in close cooperation with national authorities and institutions, the partners represented in the Humanitarian Response Plan are committed to five Strategic Objectives:
(i) Supporting highly vulnerable displaced families living in camps and substandard accommodation by providing services and assistance packages (ii) Supporting highly vulnerable displaced families who are willing to return to their homes, but are unable to do so without assistance by providing packages at their place of displacement and when they return home (iii) Reaching as many newly displaced and currently accessible families as possible by securing safe access and providing sequenced emergency packages (iv) Supporting highly vulnerable people inadequately covered under the social protection system by providing assistance packages and facilitating access to services, and (v) Supporting people brutalized by violence to cope and recover by providing specialized assistance and protection.
Under the overall Yemen Humanitarian Coordination Architecture, UNHCR is the lead Agency in three clusters i.e. Protection, Shelter/NFL and Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM). Accordingly, UNHCR interventions being member to cluster coordination structure for internally displaced persons are also centered on protection, camp coordination and management, as well as shelter and core relief items distribution. In accordance with UNHCR's Strategic Directions (2017-2021), UNHCR is committed to "putting people first", meaning that UNHCR's programme design, implementation and monitoring (i) draws on the rich range of experiences, capacities and aspirations of refugee, displaced, and stateless women, men, girls and boys; and (ii) incorporates accountability to the persons we work with and for, listening and responding to their needs, perspectives and priorities. In so doing, UNHCR uses an age, gender and diversity approach in all its programmes, as detailed in UNHCR's updated Age, Gender and Diversity Policy (2018). UNHCR is also committed to working closely with national and local authorities to strengthen national systems and services to provide protection and assistance to internally displaced persons and the communities that host them.
Though this Call for Expression of Interest (CEI) UNHCR seeks to establish a pool of potential CCCM partners for the period covered, given the context and evolving implementation modalities and priorities of the humanitarian partners in Yemen. Positive feedback on the submitted concept note does not mean conclusion of the project partnership agreement in 2020, but will allow UNHCR and potential NGO partners to discuss implementation modalities at any time during the period 2020-2021, with possible extension for 2021 and 2022, depending on the humanitarian community priorities agreed with the authorities, priority interventions of UNHCR and its potential partners, as well as availability of resources. The call for expression should be based on the parameters below and across all governorates of Yemen. The interested NGOs Should submit the concept notes only for the areas of the interventions they have expertise in and believe can provide an added value to the persons of concern.
Population group/persons of concern: Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), host community, and other affected populations.
