More than 850 000 Rohingya refugees reside in Cox’s Bazar District in Bangladesh, including 730 000 refugees who arrived after August 2017, fleeing violence in Myanmar. The refugee influx and ensuant deterioration of the humanitarian situation have strained affected populations’ socio‑economic circumstances. To ensure food security and support livelihood opportunities, it is critical to introduce climate-smart and nutrition-sensitive agricultural technologies, and develop watershed management, disaster mitigation and reforestation strategies.
