Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM): Nepal Earthquake Cluster Brief, August 2015



The result of round 3 of the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) indicated that there are 104 active sites hosting 11,147 households (59,481 people) in 13 districts. Of the nearly 60,000 individuals living in camps, 29,043 are male, 30,390 are female and 8,376 are children under age-5. The fourth round of the DTM is ongoing. Preliminary results indicate an increase in the number of sites to 140 though many are showing decrease in population. Some of the new sites is a result of relocation of communities in high-risk areas. Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Gorkha, Nuwakot, Rasuwa, Dhading, and Sindhupalchok remain priority districts for camp management.

The absence of clarity on planned temporary relocation and transit strategy means that camp management needs may suddenly increase. Communities in many sites are expressing concern over the risk of landslides in or around their settlement.

Consultations with communities indicate that some families may return after the monsoon. However, preparations for the coming winter have not started.
