Abstract: Whether refugees living in overcrowded camps or jobless migrant workers forced to return home, the lives of millions of people in Asia-Pacific are threatened by the dangerous combination of displacement and the COVID-19 pandemic. Congested settlements, inadequate access to healthcare, lack of information, stigma and discrimination, and response to multi-hazard risks in the face of floods and cyclones, are just some of the issues that need to be urgently addressed to help ensure those displaced by conflict, disaster, or newly displaced because of COVID-19, receive adequate prevention, care and treatment. On Thursday, 9 April 2020, UNDRR Asia-Pacific hosted a webinar to identify emerging lessons generated from experiences in combating COVID-19 in refugee camps in Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh, and amongst internally displaced communities in Afghanistan. It also explored how COVID-19 is impacting migrant workers in Asia-Pacific, featuring India as a case study.
