Extreme weather hazards will occur more frequently due to climate change in the years ahead. The linkages between climate change, migration and displacement are increasingly pressing worldwide. To avert, mitigate and address displacement linked to climate disasters and strengthen people’s resilience, IOM calls on governments to implement sustainable climate adaptation, preparedness and disaster risk reduction measures.

IOM is working to support the cyclone-affected refugees and the host communities with shelters, WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene), health, protection, and other required humanitarian assistance. 

With funding for the Rohingya response having been drastically reduced, the international community urgently needs to increase its support to ensure that the Cox’s Bazar refugee camps receive adequate support as the monsoon season looms.
