Extreme violence in Myanmar has driven more than 700,000 Rohingya refugees across the border into Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh in 2017. This is one of the largest refugee crises in the world. This refugee population has distinct humanitarian needs such as food, shelter, and actionable information in a language they understand. The only language that everyone in this community speaks and understands is Rohingya; a language that has no written form and has, in the past, attracted very little research into terminology and structure.
To best respond to the Rohingya community’s acute information needs, TWB is working in consortium with BBC Media Action and other consortium and implementing partners, working groups etc. to generate research and create tools to assist humanitarian actors to communicate effectively, in the appropriate language.
