Azerbaijan: Pre-existing situation and impact of the 2020 Na...
On 27 September, heavy fighting broke out between Azeri and Armenian forces in and around the contested region of Nagorno-Karabakh. The region is recognised as part of Azerbaijan but is de-facto controlled by an ethnic Armenian administration.?
On 9 November, Armenia and Azerbaijan signed a Russian-brokered ceasefire. Under its provisions, Armenia will return Aghdam, Kelbajar, and Lachin districts, along with parts of Gazakh district, to Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan will maintain control over territory gained in Nagorno-Karabakh during the latest conflict. Russian peacekeepers will be deployed in the remaining areas of Nagorno-Karabakh and along the Lachin corridor that connects Stepanakert to Armenia. The deal also calls for the return of IDPs and refugees to Nagorno-Karabakh, without providing any further details.?
More than 90,600 displaced people from Nagorno-Karabakh have been registered in all of Armenia’s provinces. 39% of these were registered in Yerevan province, 18% in neighbouring Kotayk province, and 9% in Syunik province, which borders Nagorno-Karabakh. ?
Specific information on the needs of spontaneous arrivals in Nagorno-Karabakh is not yet available, although cold winter weather is likely to make shelter and NFIs a key priority.? As people continue to arrive, increasingly overcrowded communal spaces used for shelter will present higher risks of COVID-19 transmission.
