In late August 2017, a mass influx of Rohingya refugees occurred from the Rakhine State of Myanmar into Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh. Refugees are living in Ukhia and Teknaf upazilas in Cox’s Bazar, a district bordering Myanmar where the main border crossing points are located.
From 11 November to 5 December, 1,635 locations in collective sites and host communities were assessed by NPM enumerators. These 1,635 locations are located within two formal refugee camps, three make-shift settlements established before the August 2017 influx, thirty-three new spontaneous settlements both around and separate from the refugee camps and makeshift settlements, and 65 locations where Rohing-ya were identified living in host communities.
