Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 13
By Azad Hasanli – Trend:
The UK Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) will allocate grants to about 70 IDP families for the implementation of business projects, said the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
The funds will be allocated under the project for the support of the socio-economic development of Azerbaijan's population affected by the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The project will be carried out jointly with the IOM, in cooperation with the Azerbaijani government.
Business plans were prepared after trainings for IDPs from Azerbaijan’s Aghdam, Barda, Fuzuli, Tartar, Gazakh and Goranboy districts. As noted, the business plans cover animal husbandry, production of various products in small volumes, as well as the creation of hairdressing salons, car washes, etc.
The project is designed to contribute to the socio-economic reintegration of IDPs and their families in the Azerbaijani society by improving their welfare and standards of living.
