- 2023 JRP
Under the leadership of the Bangladesh Government, the 2023 Joint Response Plan (JRP) for the Rohingya Humanitarian Crisis was launched on 07 March. The JRP is developed yearly and is an annual fundraising document and articulates the shared vision of how the humanitarian community will respond to the assessed and expressed needs of Rohingya refugees and affected host communities.
Through the 2023 JRP, the UN and its partners are calling on the international community to extend financial support to address the prioritized needs of Rohingya refugees and the Bangladeshi communities that are hosting them as the refugee crisis enters its sixth year. The 2023 JRP requests $876 million to reach 1.47 million people, including Rohingya refugees sheltered in Cox’s Bazar and Bashan Char and Bangladeshi host communities in Ukhiya and Teknaf. The 2023 JRP brings together 116 partners including UN Agencies, Bangladeshi and international NGOs. Nearly half of them are national organizations from Bangladesh.
The 2023 JRP is focusing on five key objectives-
Work towards the sustainable and voluntary repatriation of Rohingya refugees/Forcibly Displaced Myanmar Nationals (FDMN) to Myanmar.
Strengthen the protection of Rohingya refugees/FDMN women, men, girls, and boys.
Deliver life-saving assistance to populations in need.
Foster the well-being of host communities in Ukhiya and Teknaf Upazilas.
Strengthen disaster risk management and combat the effects of climate change.
