  • registration of displaced journalists and media content creators;
  • data collection of registered individuals for a better understanding of the area of needs;
  • organization of five events to meet beneficiaries, and further discuss topics concerning current needs, future plans, and support mechanisms;
  • up to 10 media content creators who had to disassemble their equipment for security reasons will have their equipment (computer/camera) replaced;
  • more than 100 media content creators will receive one-time emergency benefits to cover their urgent needs;
  • a needs assessment report will be prepared as well as meetings with beneficiaries that will contribute to the development of a comprehensive strategy for the integration of media professionals from Nagorno-Karabakh in Armenia.
