Over the past week, 22,000 new arrivals were reported to have crossed the border from Rakhine State (Myanmar) to Bangladesh. As of 5 January, an estimated 65,000 people are residing in registered camps, makeshift settlements and host communities in Cox's Bazaar. Biometric registration for new arrivals has been proposed to assist partners to further improve relief service provision. To complement the local response, UN agencies and NGO partners continue to provide food, NFIs, emergency shelter materials and protection services to the new arrivals and undocumented Myanmar nationals.
