While continuing to support conflict-affected and displaced people, the cluster will introduce new activities to support gender and age appropriate, safe and sustainable returns, relocations and local integration.43 These include work on HLP issues, particularly for women and child-headed households;
community resilience building; local conflict mitigation and peaceful coexistence; youthrelated programming; demobilization and reintegration programming for children associated with armed forces and armed groups; and income-generating activities in collaboration with livelihood partners.
