Needs and Population Monitoring (NPM) Bangladesh Round 16 Site Assessment

Subject/Objective: 

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.

Methodology: 

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.In Round 15, to include female perspectives into the Site Assessment in a systematic manner, a methodology was developed to identify and conduct interviews with females key informants. This process and the design of the data collection methodology involved extensive field level design and piloting with female field staff. During Round 16, female key informant interviews were conducted in 1945 locations in refugee sites. As a result of this exercise, NPM now has a comprehensive dataset which can be used for analysis against the majhee KI dataset. Points of comparison and differences between male and female key informants are presented in this report to highlight key issues that women may be facing in the refugee camps.
