This year torrential rains, flooding, and landslides in Cox's Bazar could create a disaster within a disaster. Within 24 hours of a deluge, roads in the Rohingya camps can turn to mud, while hills are highly susceptible to landslides. This weather is guaranteed to wreak havoc, destroying makeshift shelters, flooding roads and low-lying settlements, and smashing bridges. The most likely scenario of a normal to heavy monsoon season, along with a number of cyclonic/high winds, may result in the following:
During the monsoon season, all students should be told, and regularly reminded of, the key messages in this document. Teachers should reinforce these messages regularly through role play, games and poems. All TLCs should have an Evacuation Plan in place, and practice it regularly with the students, likely in the form of a School Safety Drill.
The influx of over 600,000 Rohingya Refugees into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, caused by targeted violence and human rights violations in Rhakine State of Myanmar, has unfolded rapidly and is defined by the complexity of needs. This requires not only immediate solution for a safe and protective learning environment, but also a guarantee for better and diverse solutions to address the learning needs of children, adolescents and young adults.
Since August 25 2017, Bangladesh has seen an unprecedented arrival of Rohingya refugees fleeing targeted violence and serious human rights abuses in Myanmar’s Rakhine State. Among the estimated total of 866,000 refugees that have crossed the border (living in 194,603 households), 55% of this population are children.
SDR Executive Summary
An outbreak of violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State on 25 August 2017 triggered a large-scale influx of the Rohyinga population into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. They join other members of the Rohingya population who crossed into Bangladesh previously and reside in formal camps and makeshift settlements. The new influx has resulted in the expansion of these sites, as well as new spontaneous settlements; some of the new arrivals have also settled within the host community.
