Description : Russian Federation: ICRC adapts to changing needs in northern Caucasus
10-04-2014 Operational Update

The ICRC is adapting its activities in the northern Caucasus to match the changing situation and provide effective support and assistance to those in need.


Helping people support themselves

ICRC micro-economic projects have allowed people to launch small family businesses in farming, crafts, trades and services. In 2013, the ICRC launched 348 micro-economic projects in Chechnya, Ingushetia and Dagestan. These will run as planned till the end of 2014, when the programme will be complete.

2014 will also see the end of economic support for vulnerable communities in remote villages of Chechnya affected by past conflicts, where the ICRC has been providing agricultural machinery, equipment and seed.
