Since 25 August 2017, over 655,000 Rohingya refugees have crossed the border into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, as a result of violence in Rakhine state, Myanmar; joining some 200,000 Rohingya that were already living in the district. The speed and scale of the influx has resulted in a critical humanitarian emergency. The Rohingya population in Cox’s Bazar is highly vulnerable, having fled conflict with very few possessions and experienced severe trauma.

Current settlements are congested, experiencing significant issues in service provision. As the cyclone season approaches, there is a need to address shelter resistance to avoid potential threats, such as landslides and flooding. WASH facilities are needed to mitigate potential disease outbreaks, as the lack of a permanent infrastructure is exacerbating the already complicated situation. Additionally, as the large influx of Rohingya refugees continues to strain existing services in host communities, there is an urgent need to sale up services to avoid increasing tensions between the two communities.

The humanitarian response to the influx of Rohingya refugees into Cox’s Bazar is coordinated by the Inter-Sector Coordination Group (ISCG), established in 2017 and led by IOM at the request of the Government of Bangladesh.

The present appeal outlines IOM’s funding requirements from January 2018 until December 2018 in line with the Humanitarian Response Plan. IOM operations focus on five sectors of assistance: Shelter and Non-Food Items (NFI), Site Management and Site Development (SMSD), Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Health, and Protection. IOM leads the coordination of two sectors (Shelter/NFI and Site Management).

Overall Targeted Beneficiaries: 675,000 Rohingya refugees and 200,000 host community members
