The joint needs assessment in Khuroson and Panj districts in October 2009 revealed some additional and urgent needs of the affected families. As winter has arrived, these people were in need of stoves, wood and coal. Unfortunately these needs could not be addressed due to lack of resources.
The response capacity of both the national and the Central Asian regional disaster response teams has been enhanced during this response operation, as they joined the involved Red Crescent branches and other actors in rapid and detailed needs assessments in the area. The deployment of the regional disaster response team (RDRT) has proven the effectiveness of one of the International Federationís response tools, and was also a step towards the implementation of the regional contingency plan developed in 2007.
The International Federation on behalf of the Tajikistan Red Crescent Society takes this opportunity to thank those who contributed to the appeal.
