Introduction :

Country: Cox'sbazar, Bangladesh


Description of the Assignment: 

The influx of around 745,000 Rohingya people into Bangladesh since August 2017 has placed enormous pressure on host communities in Cox's Bazar and the Government of Bangladesh (GoB). The impacts of the influx have been severe and far-reaching. Given the conflict risks in the district, the project aims to focus on reducing social tensions and tackling the underlying causes of those tensions - both immediate and longer-term drivers. Enhancing Community Safety, Peaceful Coexistence and Access to Justice Project (CSPC) project is designed on the work and lessons of the UNDP C2RP project and uses an Area Based Approach that integrates strongly cross-linked interventions between community security, access to justice and participatory local governance, to implement the following interventions.

The Enhancing Community Safety, Peaceful Coexistence and Access to Justice Project (CSPC) of CXB will support relevant Government agencies to increase the capacity of police to prevent and respond to crime; enhance community security and people-oriented policing for both the Rohingya and host communities through strengthening Community Policing Forums (CPFs), Beat Policing and Community Safety Forums of Camps (CSF) to ensure community protection. Support small-scale infrastructure development at the Union level and provide furniture and IT equipment for selected police stations to improve services for survivors of gender-based violence (GBV), including a feasibility study for victim support centers or facilities.

The project will also increase the participation of the communities to raise their voice against gender-based violence, early marriage, drug trafficking, and use, prevent community crimes and support the CPF mechanism; increase involvement of citizens, particularly women and other marginalized groups, in local community security planning for implementation. Organize inclusive dialogues on security issues. The project will also support the school students in the crime prevention programme and support the district police for their effective participation of the programme.   

Amongst its objectives, the project-specific aims to activate the community policing mechanism as well as enhance the capacity of the community police forum members who are from the host community. The mechanism would support the host community to defend the petty crimes through tracking and identifying the actors and keeping close contact with the local police camp or police station. The project will also enhance the capacity of the CXB District Police to investigate the cases because of this there are long huge pending cases in the district Judiciary and the capacity of the Armed Police Battalion (APBn) to ensure effective service delivery and mitigate safety issues at the camps. As the project is working to strengthen the capacity of the host community, CXB district police and APBn forces to ensure quality peaceful co-existence of the host community and Rohingya communities. 

The community policing mechanism would support experienced community security experts, including responsible police officers, to manage risks and improve partnerships between police and the host community. The proposed consultant would support to achieve of those objectives.

As per AWP 2024, the project has planned to enhance the capacity of the community policing forum members, District Police, and APBn officials, aware of the host communities especially school and college students for effective implementation of the mechanism to prevent crimes in partnership with the district police and ensure community safety for overall community cohesion n Ukhia and Teknaf of Cox’s Bazar. Therefore, the project will hire a consultant to enhance the capacity of the targeted stakeholders in Community Policing and Crime prevention and also to deliver the pertinent activities planned under the AWP 2024 and to achieve the objectives of the project.
