Peru is considered one of the countries most prone to natural disaster in South America. In the past decades, Peru has been affected by flooding, droughts, earthquakes and volcano eruptions, which have all resulted in population displacement. Most recently, heavy rain at the end of 2016 destroyed or severely damaged an estimated number of 47,000 houses. More than 46,000 people found refuge in 182 civilian collective centres located mostly in the northern regions of the country. There are still hundreds of families living in collective centres and the Committee for the National Study of the El Niño Phenomenon (ENFEN in Spanish) foresees that in the first six months of 2018 there will be an increase in both rain and droughts in several regions of the country due to the La Niña Phenomenon. 

During 2018, IOM plans on delivering Camp Coordination and Camp Management training to regional and local government officials in prioritized regions based on manuals recently developed in coordination with the National Institute of Civil Defense (INDECI in Spanish). Depending on the impact of the La Niña Phenomenon, IOM will also provide NFIs and support local authorities to improve living conditions of collective centres. During 2017, IOM also deployed its Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) in northern Peru to monitor living conditions in collective centres and is currently using DTM to monitor migration flows through the northern and southern borders. In 2018, IOM plans to continue deploying its DTM and broadening the range of implementing partners. 

IOM is part of the National Humanitarian Network and co-leads the Camp Coordination and Camp Management Cluster in coordination with the INDECI.
