Rohingya Crisis Response: Bolstering Learning, Livelihoods, and Community

UN Women continues to galvanize Rohingya refugee women’s self-discovery, empowerment and leadership. The launch of the new, much larger Multi-purpose Women’s Center (MPWC) in Cox’s Bazar provides a safe, communal space away from the chaos of camp life with an assortment of training and learning opportunities for women.

The latest Rohingya Crisis Response update also covers an exciting joint UN-Women-WFP livelihood partnership, a flurry of empowerment activities throughout the ‘16 Days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence’ and efforts to strengthen Bangladesh police capacity to address gender-based violence (GBV) through forensic case management and victim-centered approaches.
