EU Civil Protection Mechanism (EUCPM)
Upon request of the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the EU Civil Protection Mechanism was activated on 27 October. Sweden, together with its International Humanitarian Partnership (IHP) partners Denmark, Estonia, Luxembourg and the UK, offered camp facilities for a coordination hub of up to 50 people. This coordination hub will enable a greater humanitarian presence and will expand the reach of humanitarian activities provided by partners to the affected refugee population in Cox's Bazar area.
In October 2017, the Food Security Sector assisted 4,530,344 unique individuals of which 27% were assisted through cash based transfers, including vouchers and electronic vouchers. Of those assisted with cash based transfers, 83% were for SO 1 (Food Assistance), with 17% for SO 2 (Agriculture and Livelihoods). As shown, cash based transfers are currently being utilized mainly in Borno State (Maiduguri, Jere & Konduga LGAs).
