History of CARE International's work in Azerbaijan

CARE International's work in Azerbaijan forms part of a wider regional approach. CARE has been working in the South Caucasus, a region located on the borders of Europe and Asia, since 1988 when it responded to the Spitak earthquake in Armenia. In the early 1990s and again in 2008, CARE International responded to armed conflicts that broke out in the region. 

What CARE International does in the South Caucasus

CARE International works at a cross-border and regional level to support the development of civil society and reduce poverty. In partnership with national organizations, we focus primarily on assisting rural households with incomes below, or at risk of falling below, the poverty line. 

CARE International strives to increase women's roles in peacebuilding and supports dialogue across existing dividing lines in the South Caucasus.

Our work in the South Caucasus focuses on:

  • Addressing underlying causes of poverty 
  • Reducing vulnerability 
  • Supporting internally displaced people
  • Strengthening women's capacity for peacebuilding
  • Improving conditions for sustainable development
