The Emergency Manual consists of entries that provide guidance on specific topics which are grouped together under six main categories:
This category provides IOM Country Offices and staff with the basic guidance and tools to facilitate immediate and efficient deployment and system support to scale up humanitarian operations as needed.
This category is divided by eight out of fifteen sectors of IOM's Migration Crises Framework (MCOF). Guidance on cross-cutting topics such as inter-agency assessments, protection mainstreaming and gender mainstreaming are also provided in this section.
This category guidance on procedures that support humanitarian operations, including project development, reporting, monitoring and evaluation, and public information.
This category provides information on management procedures for administration, finance, human resources, procurement and logistics, and information communication and technology (ICT).
This category provides security and risk management guidance, in view of emergency responders and persons of concern.
This is a database of existing methodologies, toolkits, and other resources relevant to IOM's work. This includes a repository of terms of references.
