Poverty and homelessness
Bangladesh has been at the centre of international humanitarian attention in recent years, since the violence, ethnic cleansing and human rights violations against the Rohingya population in Myanmar forced many to flee. Since 2017, Bangladesh has been host to nearly 1 million Rohingya refugees, most living in Cox’s Bazar, the largest and most densely populated refugee camp in the world.
Bangladesh is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world, because of its flat topography and climatic features. Natural hazards and overcrowding puts the Rohingya refugee population at significant risk.
