Visit of the Swiss Government Representatives to Azerbaijan

Three officials from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) representing the Government of Switzerland - Mr. Markus Baechler, Deputy Head of Europe Division, Mr. Beat von Daniken, Programme Officer/Division of Humanitarian Aid and Swiss Disaster Relief Unit and Mr. Rene Kueng, Deputy Coordinator, visited Azerbaijan on 1-2 November 2001.

The aim of the SDC representatives' visit was to get a first-hand information about the programmes implemented by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Society (IFRC) in co-operation with the Azerbaijan Red Crescent Society (AzRC) in the Southern regions of Azerbaijan.

The SDC officials visited the Southern IDP Camps and familiarized themselves with the projects currently implemented by the IFRC/AzRC within the Community Development Programme ('Agriculture', 'Women Committees', 'Children Support', 'Skills Development', 'Special Assistance', 'Meals on Wheels') and targeting about 32,000 IDPs living in the seven camps in Sabirabad, Bilasuvar, Saatli and surrounding areas.

On 2 November 2001, the Swiss government representatives visited two villages of Fizuli district - Shukurbeyli, where the IFRC has been finishing rehabilitation and repatriation project targeting about 170 IDP families settled in the Southern Camps, and Alkhanli, where the similar project has just started and will make possible the return of some 140 IDP families from the Southern Camps to their homes of origin.

The Swiss Government have been contributing through SDC and Swiss Red Cross Society to the IFRC/AzRC projects for the last three years. With this visit of SDC representatives to Azerbaijan it is hoped that the fruitful cooperation will continue.
