This thematic bulletin on social cohesion presents findings and recommendations based on Ground Truth Solutions’ (GTS) surveys conducted with 943 Rohingya and 451 locals in Bangladesh. The survey, carried out in late 2018, was administered in the Ukhia and Teknaf subdistricts. The goal is to use the views of affected people and the host community to inform humanitarian response and adjust programming accordingly. GTS will continue to track how these perceptions evolve over time, with the next survey round scheduled for spring 2019.
GTS has published three bulletins analysing Rohingya perspectives on needs and services, safety and outlook and feedback and relationships, as well as a separate bulletin on host community perspectives, covering needs and outlook.
