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.


The ICRC has helped upgrade water and sanitation systems in areas where past conflicts and deteriorating infrastructure hamper access to water, particularly in remote villages in the south of Chechnya. When the ICRC project in the village of Gilyany is completed this year, 280 households will have a mains water supply. (...)

In 2013, the ICRC provided the authorities of Prigorodny District (North Ossetia) with the materials and documentation they would need in order to complete a water supply project in Voskhod settlement, which is hosting people who fled South Ossetia and Georgia.
