    Briefing note: Bangladesh Rohingya Refugee Crisis 2018

    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.

    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.

    More than 910 000 Rohingya refugees reside in Cox’s Bazar District, including 730 000 refugees who arrived after August 2017, fleeing violence in Myanmar. The refugee influx and ensuant deterioration of the humanitarian situation have strained affected populations’ socio‑economic circumstances. To ensure food security and support livelihood opportunities, it is critical to introduce climate-smart and nutrition-sensitive agricultural technologies, and develop watershed management, disaster mitigation and reforestation strategies.
