Following an outbreak of violence on 25 August 2017 in Rakhine State, Myanmar, a new massive influx of Rohingya refugees to Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh started in late August 2017. Most of the Rohingya refugees settled in Ukhia and Teknaf Upazilas of Cox’s Bazar, a district bordering Myanmar identified as the main entry area for border crossings.
The NPM Site Assessment collects information about location, distribution, and needs of the overall Rohingya population. It does not collect information on the entire Rohingya population in Bangladesh, but in Cox’s Bazar district only. The NPM SA covers all sites where Rohingya refugees have been identified irrespectively of the location type or their proximity to Bangladeshi host communities.
Since Round 15, in order to incorporate female perspectives into the Site Assessment in a systematic manner, efforts were made to conduct female key informant interviews in each of the 1956 locations in refugee sites. This process and the design of the data collection methodology involved extensive field level design and piloting with female field staff. During Round 16, female enumerators identified and interviewed female key informants in all locations in the refugee camps, reaching 100% coverage. For more detail please consult the Methodology document linked on this page (Data source).
As a result of this exercise, NPM now has a comprehensive dataset which can be used for analysis against the majhee KI dataset. Points of comparison and differences between male and female key informants are presented in this report to highlight key issues that women may be facing in the refugee camps.
The accompanying thematic maps* for the Site Assesment round 17 (as of January 2020) provide useful visualisation on the following topics:
– Access to health facilities*
– Community areas cleanliness*
– Bathing Practices for males*
– Bathing Practices for females*
*The data used to produce these maps are from the Male Key Informant dataset.
In addition to the above, supplementary maps were created to visualise differences between responses provided by male key informants and female key informants. These maps can be viewed alongside eachother to highlight points of comparison between respondents.
