This thematic bulletin on needs and outlook presents findings and recommendations based on Ground Truth Solutions’ (GTS) surveys conducted with 451 local people in Bangladesh. The survey, carried out in late 2018, was administered in the Ukhia and Teknaf subdistricts and is the first round of data collection to cover the opinions of the host community. GTS has already carried out two rounds of data collection and reporting covering Rohingya community perceptions. 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 a separate bulletin on social cohesion, which covers findings from both the Rohingya and host communities.
