The humanitarian situation inside Myanmar has deteriorated further since February 2021 as a result of increased conflict within the country and its political upheaval. According to UN sources, about 1.5m people are displaced internally within Myanmar as of 1 November 2022, with the majority in the Northwest, in Rakhine State and in the Southeast, as well as in Kachin state in the Northeast. UNHCR is working as part of a wider humanitarian response to internal displacement inside Myanmar, though humanitarian access remains constrained in many areas. In addition to a growing number of IDPs in Myanmar, over 70,000 refugees are estimated to have sought safety in neighbouring countries since 1 February 2021. This new displacement comes on top of a protracted refugee situation in the region comprising almost 1.2 million refugees from Rakhine State’s Rohingya community, of whom almost one million are currently protected in Bangladesh, with smaller numbers in Malaysia and India. More than 300,000 other refugees and asylum-seekers from Myanmar are also located in Thailand, Malaysia, and India.
