FAO, REA team

Status of 2015 Land cover map Recap of UNDP REA and of IOM & FAO Fuelwood Assessment Overview of planned FAOBD activities in the Rohingya area (Bangladesh Forest Inventory, land delineation, participatory monitoring, etc.)

1.The IOM&FAO assessment defined an AOI and the UNDP Assessment may use a different AOI. Therefore, it should be noted the different results may occur from the different UN organizations. It is helpful to be consistent whenever possible. For example, using the same AOI and building from results already reported in the IOM & FAO assessment. 2. Unlike the Landcover map, the Bangladesh Forest Department tree cover map is finalised and shareable. 3. Follow up may include further collaboration around the points discussed above.

Not a single Rohingya person is suffering from starvation. Every family has been provided with shelter. 3 Brigade of Army and over 2,600 government officers and staff are now engaged in the site management and its operation.
