WFP Bangladesh Rohingya - Refugee Response Situation Report #45 December 2020

WFP launched the first global Retail in a Box (RIAB) pilot in Camp 23 on 6 December; now 2,400 households (11,040 individuals) can receive monthly food assistance through evouchers, rather than in-kind. RIAB is a mobile storage unit that enables WFP to rapidly set up retail outlets. It can be used as a solution to kickstart retail networks and ultimately build a reliable market.

For the first time in Cox’s Bazar, WFP started providing monthly allowances to host community women engaged in the livelihoods programme through bKash (a national mobile financial service) and disbursed USD 59,846 to 4,827 women.
