The Tibetan Plateau has been affected by heavy snowstorms that caused the death of thousands of livestock. There was no memory of such a disaster amongst the nomads in living memory. The programme was a continuation of emergency operations with the specific aim of assisting the local population in view of the incoming winters. The project intended to support the nomads to face the coming winters by providing food; firewood for fuel and other essential relief items in areas where not already provided (shoes, medicines, shovels).
