The purpose of Local Works Bangladesh Activities is to enable the local partners in the areas impacted by the Rohingya displacement to conserve and rehabilitate natural resources. The activities will mitigate the impact of the refugee displacement on the natural environment and will improve communities’ ability to cope with the sudden strains of accommodating nearly one million additional people on their land.


  • The activities’ goal: “To enable local conservation and rehabilitation of natural resources in the Cox’s Bazar district, especially in areas severely impacted by the Rohingya displacement”, will contribute to IR 4.1: Improved Ecosystem Conservation of the USAID/Bangladesh’s Development Objective 4 (DO4) – Strengthened Resilience to Natural Hazards.
  • These activities also align with the proposed USAID/Bangladesh Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS). Under the proposed CDCS, these activities will contribute to the Mission’s CDCS-level goal: “Bangladesh, an inclusive, economically viable, food secure, healthy, well-educated, and natural hazards-resilient democracy.”
