Market-based lighting for refugees and host communities in Bangladesh: lighting, sanitation and the risk of gender-based violence

Case study 3: Bangladesh, Rohingya refugee camps, Cox’s Bazaar. What was the approach – when, where and why? The south-eastern-most part of Bangladesh is currently home to close to one million Rohingya refugees, the majority of whom live in sprawling camps in Cox’s Bazaar. Over 700,000 have fled Myanmar since August 2017. However, there have been three waves of displacement over the past 20 years, meaning some refugees live within host communities.
