Following an outbreak of violence on 25 August 2017 in Rakhine State, Myanmar, a new massive influx of Rohingya refugees to Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh started in late August 2017.

This document displays the site outlines for the following displacement sites: Jamtoli, Chakmarkul, Unchiprang, Shamlapur, Teknaf, and Kutupalong/Balukhali Expansion Site – Kutupalong RC.

The Rohingya influx in Cox’s Bazar has put pressure on the district’s Bangladeshi community, particularly in the upazilas of Teknaf and Ukhia where the Rohingya now constitute at least one third of the total population.

From 11 November to 5 December, 1,635 locations in collective sites and host communities were assessed by NPM enumerators.

In the 20th century, there have been multiple waves of movement of Rohingya population from Rakhine State in Myanmar to Cox’s Bazar in Bangladesh and back. This report is a review of available literature on the Rohingya influxes into Bangladesh since 1978.

As of 21 November, an estimated 622,000 Rohingya refugees fled Myanmar to Bangladesh. The influx began on 25 August, after the Myanmar Army launched security operations in northern Rakhine state. In September, an average of approximately 14,500 people arrived daily.

The following map provides an overview of the collective sites hosting the Rohinya population.
