The caption of the visual: "The State policy does not address the issue of individuals left homeless due to the earthquake who are still living in rented accommodations or within buildings and structures in emergency conditions. Up until now, the State has not defined the format of its support and/or the resettlement procedures in such cases".
The caption of the visual: "The state policy aimed at addressing housing issues in the disaster zone should be human-centered."
