IOM Vision

IOM Türkiye’s vision consists of responding to persistent acute needs while addressing longer-term recovery and reconstruction exigencies by leveraging existing programmes and engagement in the early recovery sector, expanding durable solutions and enhancing disaster preparedness. IOM will also prioritize its ongoing assistance to Syrians under Temporary Protection (SuTPs), in line with the Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan (3RP). Moreover, IOM intends to leverage its extensive knowledge of mobility trends and leadership position in regional coordination mechanisms and the Temporary Settlement Support sector to provide an evidence base for its interventions.

Description of People and Entities Targeted

IOM's interventions target SuTPs, migrants, and host community members, as well as the institutions and organizations that serve them, including and not limited to the Turkish PMM and AFAD. IOM conducts a broad range of research to enhance the evidence base on migration and promote evidence-based policymaking and dialogue. IOM works with authorities to collect data on migrant/refugee presence and flows and improve information management capacities. Further, IOM has employed the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) to conduct data collection activities including Site Mappings and Needs Assessments in the areas impacted by the earthquakes that struck the Republic of Türkiye in February 2023. This proactive approach has empowered humanitarian partners to implement a well-informed response that is guided by substantiated data and evidence.

Before implementation, IOM conducts conflict-sensitive needs assessments, value chain assessments, market assessments, gender risk analyses, and community consultations, and coordinates with relevant community, governmental and non-governmental stakeholders. Programmes target individuals based on need, with priority given to especially vulnerable groups, including newly displaced, female- and child-headed households, the elderly and persons with disabilities.

Basic needs, including food and multi-purpose cash assistance

To support the basic needs of SuTPs and host communities in the region, IOM will provide the following assistance:

  • Provide specialized one-time cash assistance for the most vulnerable SuTP and host community members to meet their winterization needs.

Temporary settlement support

IOM leads the TSS sector, which is the Republic of Türkiye's specific version of the Global Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Cluster. The sector’s main objective is to represent and support the EQ-affected people, which encompasses SuTPs, other migrants, and host community members residing in temporary settlements such as formal and informal sites, to ensure fair and dignified access to assistance, information, and protection for as long as necessary. The TSS sector partners support information-sharing, coordination, reporting and advocacy, ensuring that updates and relevant priorities and gaps identified at the field level are translated into inter-sector strategies and plans. In the Republic of Türkiye, government entities, primarily AFAD in coordination with local authorities, are responsible for the management of formal displacement sites and coordination of response across all temporary settlements, while informal settlements are under the oversight of local authorities. The TSS sector complements government through a set of key activities implemented by IOM and other sector partners relating to service mapping and referrals, access to information and community engagement, site improvements, and targeted care and maintenance activities. 

TSS Sector responsibilities include: 

1. Coordination: 

  • Establish and maintain appropriate coordination with all humanitarian partners (including national and international NGOs, the Red Cross/Red Crescent Movement, and with national authorities and local structures. TSS is not responsible for coordinating multi-sector assistance for informal settlements or formal sites. Instead, TSS partners conduct regular site profiling and monitoring, including mapping locations and identifying assistance gaps to use this and other information to advocate on behalf of residents to ensure support to meet their needs, and the identification of viable alternative accommodation as appropriate.

2. Technical standards and guidelines: 

  • Advocate for relevant policies, guidelines, and technical standards appropriate to the context of the crisis e.g. fire safety and mobile site management. 
  • Ensure sector members are aware of relevant policy guidelines and technical standards, including gender markers. 
  • Ensure that the responses are in line with existing policy guidance, technical standards and relevant government human rights legal obligations. 
  • Develop contextualized guidance as needed. 

3. Preparedness and capacity: 

  • Promote and support efforts to strengthen knowledge of camp management and other related activities for relevant stakeholders, including NGOs, UN agencies, and members of displaced and host communities. 
  • In coordination with the government, ensure appropriate preparedness measures to mitigate the impact of weather in formal settlements, and advocate for the needs of those living in informal settlements. 

4. Advocacy and resource mobilization 

  • Identify core advocacy concerns and contribute key messages to broader, multi-sector advocacy initiatives. 
  • Represent the interests of the sector in discussions with the UN Country Team (UNCT)+ - an extended UNCT which includes NGOs -  on prioritization, resource mobilization and advocacy.

To support the EQ-affected people residing in the temporary settlements, i.e. formal and informal sites, and to ensure fair and dignified access to assistance, information, and protection for as long as necessary, IOM will complement the government's efforts through a set of key activities:

  • Service mapping and referral: For designated geographic areas of coverage, map and profile sites to identify needs and gaps and conduct referrals to sectors, as well as to advocate for needs to be addressed by the most suitable counterpart. Maintain an overview of sites in coverage areas, as well as up-to-date information on the number of people in sites.
  • Conduct community engagement and communicating with communities (CwC) activities (age, gender, and diversity (AGD) focused), including operationalizing and strengthening complaints and feedback mechanisms, information dissemination, awareness-raising, organizing community meetings, community-led projects and events to ensure meaningful community participation and strengthen AAP.
  • Implement site improvement activities (age and gender-inclusive) in the site including the construction and repair of access such as pathways, ramps, multipurpose communal space, drainage, etc.
  • Distribute communal items such as lighting, heaters, fire safety kits, tool kits etc.
