I. BACKGROUND

In Rakhine, community ponds are one the major water sources in the rural areas. The communities rely on these water sources throughout the dry season.

The world has never been closer to eradicating polio, with fewer cases in fewer areas of fewer countries than at any time in the past.

Executive Summary

Rationale and objectives of the meeting

In the East Asia and the Pacific Region (EAPR), despite economic growth and achievements in health and nutrition indicators, maternal and child undernutrition rates and burden remain extremely high. The annual estimated number of cases of severe wasting in EAPR countries is over six million, but the indirect coverage of the treatment of Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) is less than 2%. Prevention and management of acute malnutrition is therefore a large unfinished agenda in this region.

The Shelter/NFI/CCCM Cluster was activated in January 2013 in Yangon, and by March 2013 the CCCM Cluster became operational in Rakhine State. Currently two Camp Management Agencies are doing substantial work for the CCCM Cluster in relation to data collection, coordination and monitoring of services, community mobilization, capacity building and information management in a number of camps. In addition, two agencies serve as CCCM Focal Points for the Cluster and thereby ensure a minimum of communication between camp populations and the UNHCR led CCCM Cluster.
