Inter-Agency Response Plan (IARP) Delivery in 2021

With the beginning of the conflict in and around NK, the UN system in Armenia immediately established a flexible and scalable coordination structure under the leadership of Resident Coordinator’s Office (RCO), UNHCR, and technical working groups led by WFP, UNICEF, WHO, UNHCR and UNDP.

The multi-agency comprehensive response strategy consolidated the financial requirements of humanitarian partners supporting GoA to provide assistance and protection services to the 90,000 refugee-like individuals who fled NK in fall 2020.

Humanitarian funding mobilized under RCO and UNCHR leadership resulted in:

The initial Inter-Agency Response Plan (IARP) was for a period of nine months (October 2020 – June 2021)
to coordinate the response to meet the needs of 90,000 persons in a refugee-like situation who arrived
in Armenia as a consequence of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Since then, many of these individuals have returned and, as of 1 June 2021, 36,989 individuals remain in a refugee-like situation1 in the ten regions of the country and Yerevan. IARP partners have therefore updated their operational approach based on the remaining refugee-like population as well as their newly identified needs and are enhancing the multisectoral response required to provide the necessary assistance to the estimated remaining 37,000 individuals in refugee-like situation as well as the host community in Armenia.

With this updated interagency plan, which covers the period from July to December 2021, a total of 15 IARP partners are appealing for US$ 20,233,689.
