1. CCCM key activities at informal site level

In informal settlements, CCCM and other humanitarian actors should support the preparedness and response activities of local authorities and Department of Health (DoH), responsible for leading public health interventions. The first step in planning CCCM COVID-19 interventions is to understand the planning and intentions of authorities, with CCCM (and other humanitarian) activities then being designed to complement these and avoid duplication. Activities should be appropriately coordinated with local authorities during design and implementation.
