Protecting our most vulnerable:
Disaster impact assessment for the Rohingya refugee community
Join us Thursday 17 September, 12.30pm
In 2017, more than 700,000 Rohingya people fled their home country of Myanmar to escape the horrific ethnic cleansing they faced for being Muslim.
They settled in the southeast of Bangladesh, joining 250,000 Rohingya already living there. Now, more than one million Rohingya inhabit the largest refugee camp in the world, with no sign of a return home in the near future.
The United Nations Development Programme engaged Tonkin + Taylor International to develop a multi-hazards impact model for the Rohingya refugees and surrounding host communities in Ukhia and Teknaf sub-districts in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.
We'd like to share the lessons we learned.
We will be discussing:
The methodology behind generating the disaster impact models
The scale of impacts expected from cascading and compound scenarios
Supporting humanitarian contingency planning
