Bangladesh 2017–2018 / Rohingya crisis

This project provided shelter upgrade kits, training and technical assistance to help recently arrived refugees in Cox’s Bazar reduce their shelter vulnerability to potential heavy rains and winds. It was part of the second phase of the shelter response, following the emergency distributions after the massive influx in 2017. To meet the scale of needs, resources were carefully allocated to provide shelter materials, tools and technical assistance, and mobilize the community for shelter upgrade and localized site improvements. The organization also provided coordination services and established a common pipeline, which contributed to reaching the Sector target of 180,000 households before the monsoon season.
