Description: AzerWeb is an Internet and Intranet web-site (on-line information system) developed to promote dialogue and information sharing within the humanitarian and commercial sectors of Azerbaijan. AzerWeb is maintained and operated by the Save the Children till January 2001, when it was devolved to Open Society Institute - Assistance Foundation Azerbaijan. AzerWeb was originally envisioned as the Azerbaijan component of the United Nation Department of Humanitarian Affairs (UNDHA) effort to expand ReliefWeb, an online information system. Discussions on the AzerWeb project began in early 1995 and included representatives from USAID, MC, SCF, UN Development and Relief Agency, IRC, RI, CARE, WV, UN and DHA. AzerWeb was designed to be utilized as a tool in strengthening the reliability and timeliness of information dissemination that supports the work of humanitarian and development agencies in Azerbaijan. Since most information found in AzerWeb is voluntarily supplied by the agencies themselves, sometimes augmented by data from other sources, OSI-AF does not take responsibility for the accuracy of the information nor does it necessarily endorse any view point that might be expressed by another organization.
