The crisis in Rakhine state, in Western Myanmar, is not new. Rakhine state is one of the least developed states in Myanmar, being prone to natural disasters from storms and cyclones. The socio-economic situation there has deteriorated since the outbreak of intercommunal violence in 2012. Renewed tensions in northern Rakhine state in August have displaced Rohingya communities (mainly Muslims) and many fled to Bangladesh.
According to the update provided by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) on 14 June:
- 702,000 accumulative arrivals (since 25 August)
- 915,000 total Rohingya population in Cox’s Bazar
- 1.3 million people are in need of humanitarian aid
CEDAR is working with other Integral Alliance members on planning a response to help the displaced by providing:
- WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) support
- Health and nutrition support
- Daily necessities
