Résumé du poste


Bangladesh has been the second theatre of the Rohingya crisis for more than 30 years. The Muslim minority has faced decades of repression and discrimination in its home country Myanmar/Burma, precisely in the north of Rakhine State, resulting in many of its members seeking refuge in neighboring Bangladesh, in the southern region of Cox’s Bazar. Since the events of the 25th of August 2017, over 700,000 Rohingya have crossed the border from Myanmar to Bangladesh, making it the world’s fastest developing refugee emergency. In mid-October, there were more than one million cumulative refugees in the country, as 300,000 Rohingya were already in Bangladesh following previous waves of displacement. The sudden surge in the number of Rohingya arrivals has stretched the capacities of humanitarian organizations/agencies operating in Bangladesh. These new arrivals are being hosted in camps for registered refugees, but also overcrowded makeshift settlements, including schools, community centers, religious buildings, and with local families. New clusters of settlements have also been set up and continue to expand.

The Rohingya crisis has created immediate needs for cross-sectorial assistance. Concerns for the newly displaced persons include lack of access to food and nutrition issues, widespread need for adequate WASH facilities, shelter, health, psychosocial support, gender and protection and restoration of family links.
