Preparing for Extreme Weather: Part Two

Jun 13, 2018, 10:28 AM

The monsoons have arrived in Bangladesh. Humanitarian organisations are already seeing the severe effects of flooding and landslides on the Cox’s Bazar camps. In this episode we’re going back to the camps and talking to the organisations helping prepare the Rohingya for the extreme weather to come. We’ll be looking into ways to strengthen shelters and the landscape around them. We’ll also be finding out what MOAS is doing and hear from the people spreading the word about the dangers of the rainy season.
