“The long-term displacement crisis that the Government of Bangladesh is dealing with is ultimately a challenge to assist people, whether they are in the host community or among the displaced Rohingya population,” said S. Amer Ahmed, World Bank Task Team Leader for the ISO project.

“The ISO project will help vulnerable families in both communities invest, preserve and utilise their human capital through support for temporary work, training, education, child protection, primary health care, nutrition, family planning and gender-based violence response and prevention services,” Amar said.

The Host and Rohingya Livelihood Enhancement Project (HELP) will improve access to basic services and increase the resilience of at least 645,000 people in the Rohingya and host communities.

The project activities will include urgently needed investments in water, sanitation and health, climate-resilient roads, renewable energy, and multi-purpose disaster shelters – critical infrastructure to support productive livelihoods.

The project will also focus on providing skill building for operations and maintenance at both government and community levels, aiming to achieve the dual benefit of sustainability of infrastructure and long-term skill development.
