Needs and Population Monitoring (NPM) Bangladesh Round 13 Site Assessment


The NPM Site Assessment collects information about the overall Rohingya population, including refugees who arrived before 25 August 2017. It does not collect information on the entire Rohingya population in Bangladesh, but in Cox’s Bazar district only. The NPM SA covers all sites where Rohingya refugees have been identified irrespective of the location type, including makeshifts settlements, spontaneous settlements, host communities, and formal refugee camps.


The multisectoral needs assessment gathers information on the living conditions, needs of populations residing in the
locations pre-identified by the NPM baseline. The data collected by the assessment focuses primarily on displacement trends and figures, multi-sectoral vulnerabilities, priorities of assistance, and future objectives. The questionnaire has been compiled to
support the Inter Sector Coordinating Group (ISCG) with sectors leaders and their information managements teams engaged throughout.
The multisectoral tool is followed by a qualitative component that involves interviews with different categories of Key Informants, including Camp Managers, Camp Committee and Governance bodies (i.e. Para Development Committee member, Block Committee members), and female specific interviews. This Qualitative data is used to triangulate and confirm findings
captured in the quantitative multi-sectoral tool, but also, specifically in the case of the female KIIs, to provide a crucial female
perspective to the findings.
