Violence in Rakhine State, Myanmar, which began on 25 August 2017 has driven an estimated 655,500 Rohingya across the border into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. The large influx of Rohingya is placing tremendous stress on the natural resource base in and around the refugee settlements, with far-reaching impacts on biodiversity, agro-forestry, water sources and air quality. Compounded by climate change, these impacts are generating new disaster risks which threaten lives and livelihoods of both refugees and host communities in an already fragile environment and displacement setting. Huge unplanned settlements in the reserved forest land, daily cutting of trees and destruction of non-timber products has severely impacted the environment for healthy habitation.

1. Be the thematic focal point for Energy, Environment and Livelihoods interventions of IOM in Cox’s Bazar; provide technical support and ensure effective implementation of activities in the field.

3.
