Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

UNHCR will continue its protection interventions for a small number of urban refugees and some 33,000 registered refugees from Myanmar living in the camps in Bangladesh. The host country has provided the required land for official camps, issued birth certificates to all new-born babies in them, and maintains law and order in camps. 

Based on the outcome of the census conducted by the Government of Bangladesh in 2016 for the estimated 200,000 - 500,000 people of concern from Myanmar’s northern Rakhine Sate, UNHCR will work closely with the Government to promote a community-based protection framework for them. 

Key priorities

In 2017, the UNHCR operation in Bangladesh will focus on:

•    improving access to justice through the provision of legal assistance, strengthening prevention and responses to sexual and gender-based violence;
•    improving the environment for child protection;
•    ensuring timely update of the registration database as well as issuance of birth certificates; 
•    advocating a move away from the parallel systems established inside camps with a particular emphasis on access to formal education and the Government’s health care facilities.
