Summary report

The rainy season is expected to have a serious impact on life-saving services and ongoing humanitarian aid in Cox’s Bazar.

Shelters and facilities will be damaged and flooded. The overall impact is likely to be an increase in needs for the 671,000 refugees and a more challenging response environment.
