Following the devastating flash floods in May and June 2022 in the districts of Sylhet and Sunamganj in Bangladesh, the Displacement Management Cluster collaborated with other clusters to assess the flood evacuation centres through partners currently active in the affected areas. Information was collected on the situation in the centres during the flood, the present conditions of the centre and the challenges.

In Bangladesh, evacuation centres are known as cyclone centres and/or flood shelters (depending on the geographical location) where displaced people take shelter during disasters, and they are usually multifunctional. The findings are summarized in this dashboard.
