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, teh ICRC 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, the ICRC will continue the project in other border villages of Tavush.
