Description : ICRC website, “Armenia: Helping people in border villages find alternative income opportunities”, 27 December 2016

"Security issues continue to affect farming activities of people in Tavush region living in communities along the international border with Azerbaijan. As an alternative to field cultivation, the ICRC piloted a new project in Barekamavan village. Through a detailed economic survey, we identified some of the most vulnerable households and offered them options that matched their needs and capacities.
As a result, 20 families in Barekamavan received beekeeping supplies and livestock to start income-generating activities. Next year, we will continue our project in other border villages of Tavush."
