The UN presented its Consolidated Inter-Agency Appeals for the Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia and the countries neighbouring Chechnya). In the Chechen region alone, an estimated 240,000 people are internally displaced, with a further 160,000 refugees in neighbouring republics. The UN undertook assessment missions in January and February. Emergency food aid needs for a targeted 1.7 million people in the CIS countries total some 138,000 mt for a 12-month period for the Caucasus and Tajikistan, and for 6 months for the displaced from Chechnya.
