  2. Consult with IOM country office teams and other key actors in the region about their roles and responsibilities related to management of evacuation centres, as well as existing practices for integration of GBV and protection considerations in evacuation centre management.

  3. Building off existing guidance and tools, develop sample guidelines for integrating GBV and Protection safeguards into evacuation centre management, with a specific focus on contexts relevant to the Asia Pacific region, and which can be adapted to specific country contexts.

  4. Compile and/or develop key tools to be used in evacuation centre management with a focus on GBV and protection (e.g., safety audits, checklists for GBV risk mitigation etc.).

  5. Create a brief guidance note to aid country offices in adapting and using the sample guidelines and tools. Adapt the guidance note into a short (2-hour maximum) webinar/training module (PowerPoint and notes).

  6. Coordinate with IOM’s Communications staff in the Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific to incorporate graphics into the toolkit to make it user-friendly and to develop other visual tools that could be useful within the toolkit (e.g., information, education and communication materials) based on best practices and international guidelines.

  7. Support select IOM Country Offices in the region (e.g., Fiji, Timor-Leste, Philippines, Vanuatu) in using the toolkit and adapting content to their specific contexts.
