    Nearly 1 million Rohingya refugees live in Cox’s Bazar, the world’s largest refugee camp, and are entirely dependent on humanitarian assistance. Already densely populated and affected by chronic poverty and climatic shocks, the Bangladeshi host community faces their own food security and livelihood challenges. As limited resources are overwhelmed and ecosystems increasingly come under strain, cost-effective emergency agricultural assistance is needed to enable host and refugee communities to meet their food needs themselves. For example, refugee families can secure yields more than double the value of every dollar FAO invests in vegetable production inputs.

    Since 25 August 2017, 688 000 Rohingya refugees escaping violence and persecution in Myanmar have settled in camps, settlements and within host communities in Cox’s Bazar district, Bangladesh, bringing the total number of refugees in the area to more than 900 300. The large number of new arrivals has placed extensive pressure on the environment and on local services, and increased the need for emergency food and nutrition support for refugees and host communities.

    Since 25 August 2017, 688 000 Rohingya refugees escaping violence in Myanmar have sought protection in Cox’s Bazar district, Bangladesh, increasing the area’s refugee population to more than 900 300. Some 91 percent live in highly congested makeshift settlements and camps. The refugees are in urgent need of emergency food and nutrition support. The majority do not have sufficient food, cooking fuel or cooking utensils. The speed and scale of the influx has placed extensive pressure on public services in host communities and may have a long-lasting environmental impact. Firewood collection has led to serious deforestation in the areas surrounding refugee camps, resulting in a dwindling supply of cooking fuel. Refugees – mainly women and children – walk up to 8 km to collect firewood from isolated forests, making them vulnerable to gender-based violence. The crisis has cost the host community significantly, through loss of natural resources, rises in food, cooking fuel and transportation prices, and a highly competitive labour market with greatly decreased wages. Firewood selling was previously one of the few local income-generating activities. Anti-refugee sentiment and conflict are on the rise.
