We are pleased to share with you the third edition of the Global CCCM Cluster Newsletter.
This edition provides updates from our field operations and partners and also tracks the progress on our 18 month European Commission Civil Protection and Humanitarian Directorate General (ECHO) funded capacity building project to strengthen CCCM's field response and coordination.
The project has already made significant progress on an ambitious work plan to update CCCM tools, information management processes, and training packages. Cluster surge capacity has already been increased with the recruitment and deployment of CCCM specialists to the CCCMCap roster and with the recruitment of CCCM Rapid Response Team members currently deployed to DRC and Botswana.
More in-depth information will be presented at our annual retreat on 4-5 November but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy the newsletter and welcome your feedback.
