The Food and Agriculture Organization - the F.A.O. - has launched an $8.3 million appeal to support Rohingya refugees, and the host populations in Bangladesh, as the onset of monsoon rains, is putting already vulnerable communities at even greater risk.

F.A.O. said the appeal aims to support some 900,000 Rohingya refugees, who now more than double the local population of Bangladeshis, thus placing significant pressure on host communities.
