ProblemDFS’ solution
The International Organization for Migration (IOM), the Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) Cluster, and the Women’s Refugee Commission launched the Women’s Participation Project (WPP) in  2016 to help CCCM professionals better share best practices at displacement sites.
More than 21 million women and girls uprooted by conflict and violence worldwide live in camps or camp-like settings. Women’s meaningful participation in decision-making and camp governance has proven to result in better humanitarian responses, reduced gender-based violence, and accountability toward affected populations. 
The WPP needed a comprehensive repository of resources to equip stakeholders with training materials, assessment tools, guidelines, and other relevant resources.
The Women’s Participation Project (WPP)’s enlarging scope to support CCCM practitioners needed a modern, user-friendly site where stakeholders could rapidly access training and resources. IOM partnered with DFS to redesign the WPP website, which was unable to accommodate essential requirements. 
DFS deployed an entirely new website infrastructure utilizing a modern layout and resource platform. An interactive dashboard provides an overview of activities and achievement, informing decision-makers. The website helps raise greater awareness of the WPP project among humanitarian practitioners, supporting accountability and women’s empowerment in humanitarian programs globally.
