star this property answer text <p>The UK is a leading donor to the humanitarian response in Bangladesh for the Rohingya people having committed £59m so far, which includes support for work regarding cyclone and monsoon preparation. This specifically consists of £3m for a joint UN project, which aims to ensure road access is maintained and improved, camp infrastructure is strengthened to be more resilient to flooding and landslides, and newly allocated land for relocations is being made safer for refugees. The UK has also allocated £1.5m to strengthen shelters and community flood awareness and preparedness.</p> more like this
