An estimated 624,000 refugees, mainly the Rohingya, have fled violence across the border from Myanmar into Cox’s Bazar and the Chittagong Hill Tracts since 25 August 2017. The rapid influx of these refugees into areas with high baseline levels of poverty and environmental vulnerability has put immense strain on infrastructure, services, and the host population. As of January 2019, over 900,000 stateless Rohingya refugees reside in Cox’s Bazaar and the vast majority lives in 34 extremely congested camps. The camps and surrounding areas are vulnerable to landslides, flooding, and cyclones. The population in sub-districts where camps are located has tripled after the refugee influx, and anger and dissatisfaction are growing among host communities. Unfortunately, since the arrival of the Rohingya refugees, there has been no progress in terms of voluntary, safe, and dignified returns of Rohingya refugees to Myanmar.
