IOM in Emergency and Post Crisis Scenarios

Established in January 2000 as the focal point in IOM for migration emergency preparedness and response, the Emergency and Post Crisis Division (EPC) under the Operations Support Department (OSD) coordinates, supports and assists IOM’s response to migration emergencies, such as population displacement, large-scale evacuations, return and reintegration. As such, the core element of IOM’s emergency and post crisis interventions is migration management, often but not limited to transportation assistance.
