🇧🇩 In an attempt to reduce extreme congestion in Cox’s Bazar camps as well as the risk of death due natural disasters and unwarranted incidents, the Bangladesh government has started the relocation of Rohingya refugees to Bhashan Char - a remote island in the Bay of Bengal.

Officials stated that refugees who are willing to move will be relocated. These efforts will also alleviate overcrowding in support to stop the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic inside of the camp.

Since December 2020, 6,688 Rohingya´s were transferred to Bhashan Char with more than 4,000 individuals relocated in the near future.

😷 Since the start of the pandemic in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the number of people considered severely food insecure has increased by nearly 25% due to the lockdown restrictions caused by the pandemic and the consequent halt of economic activity across the country.

As a result, household abilities in accessing nutritious foods and ensuring regular meals have been largely impacted. According to the iMMAP COVID-19 Situational Analysis report for December 2020, children under the age of five as well as pregnant and lactating women have been impacted the most.

📣Utilizing the iMMAP Open Data Cube, iMMAP MENA's Geoinformatics team assessed the productive state of land within the Kavango-Zambezi Trans-Frontier Conservation Area (KAZA), Africa's largest trans-boundary conservation area.

The KAZA territory comprises five different African nations: Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Soil erosion and land degradation have become significant issues in numerous areas within continental Africa, including the KAZA territory, as a result of rising population pressure on agricultural land.

The generated analysis deduced a positive productive state and minimal land degradation of up to just 6% of KAZA’s designated territory.
