Background

The massive influx of Rohingya refugees has exacerbated the vulnerabilities of the host communities (HC). Sometimes Rohingya now constitute one third of the population. Palong Khali union is where this is most striking and where we plan to work.

In April 2018, our own needs assessment found conflict between the two groups has reached breaking point. We need to address this risk of conflict by meeting Rohingya basic needs whilst also building resilience in the host community.

Both groups report that they have had decreased access to food over the past two months. More than 50% of the HC are food insecure, and the Rohingya influx exacerbated this by inflating food prices and competition in employment . 80% of Rohingya rely on food distribution, and the WFP prioritise dietary diversity and reducing refugee dependency as central to food security interventions for 2018.
