Needs and Population Monitoring (NPM) Bangladesh Round 15 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.

As of Round 15, in order to incorporate female perspectives into the Site Assessment in a systematic manner, efforts were made to conduct female key informant interviews in each of the 1956 locations in refugee sites. This process and the design of the data collection methodology involved extensive field level design and piloting with female field staff. During Round 15, female enumerators identified and interviewed female key informants in all locations in the refugee camps, reaching 100% coverage. For more detail please consult the Methodology document linked on this page (assessment data).

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.
