How can you make a difference?

Scope of Work:

Armenia is facing a dual crisis, dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and the aftermath of the escalation of conflict in Nagorno Karabakh at the end of 2020.  The conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh exacerbated the socio-economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, creating new needs and priorities impacting both the local host population and NK population in refugee-like situation. Scaled up response to address immediate and medium-term needs of host communities and displaced populations affected by the dual crisis is ongoing and is anticipated to be required for the next 6 months.

For the response to the needs of the NK population in Armenia, the UN and its partners have established a flexible coordination structure centred around four Working Groups (WG) – Shelter and NFIs, Protection, Health, Food Security and Nutrition. Under these, additional Sub-Working Groups (SWG) have been established for Child Protection (UNICEF lead), Education (UNICEF lead), and humanitarian cash transfer programming (UNICEF lead, UNHCR Co-lead). The coordination structure is supported by an Information Management WG (IMWG), to ensure a coordinated approach among agencies and partners in collecting information on activities, to facilitate data sharing and to ensure a well-informed response. With increased partners, scaled up needs and response UNICEF requires strengthened capacities for coordination and information management to better support the three working groups, as well as continue monitoring of both COVID-19 and NK conflict situation in Armenia, as well as UNICEF response to the dual crisis.
