The rapid expansion of the Cox's Bazar camps, combined with the persistent scarcity of land, has resulted in an unsuitable and precarious built environment.

Although accessibility networks have been established through various site development initiatives, movement within the camps remains limited, particularly for vulnerable groups such as the young, elderly, and disabled. Consequently, access to essential services is severely hindered.

Moreover, the topography of the Kutupalong and Teknaf areas in Cox's Bazar District is prone to landslides, soil erosion, and floods due to their proximity to tidal rivers. Addressing this situation necessitates a strategic approach to both present circumstances and potential future scenarios.

Furthermore, the camps face a significant risk of large-scale fires during the dry season. The density of shelters, coupled with the prevalent use of flammable materials like bamboo, renders them highly susceptible to rapid and extensive fire spread, often affecting neighbouring camps.

Consequently, families have been displaced from their shelters, seeking refuge in communal facilities or temporary alternative accommodations, demanding extensive coordination and resource mobilization. Effectively responding to such emergencies presents ongoing challenges that necessitate continuous resource and capacity mobilization to ensure both the readiness of infrastructure and communities.
