SITUATION IN A GLANCE

  • The USG announces nearly $200 million in FY 2020 funding for the Burma and Bangladesh response.

  • Conflict between the Government of Burma and the Arakan Army (AA) armed group has intensified since late August, nearly doubling the number of individuals displaced by the conflict since the beginning of 2020.

  • Government of Burma restrictions related to a surge in COVID-19 cases are unnecessarily compromising humanitarian access to displaced populations.

  • Violence in the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar District between rival armed groups has resulted in casualties and displacement, raising additional protection concerns.
