EU Support to recovery and stability through local development in Iraq - another example of EU-UNDP partnership
The second quarter of 2018 was one of achievement for the Funding Facility for Stabilization. Throughout the five governorates formerly subjected to ISIL occupation, the FFS continued to launch programs of varying scale and extent, according to need. This quarter saw a major milestone for the programme in the reaching of 1000 completed projects. Meanwhile, 2356 projects were ongoing.
By the end of Quarter Two, there were a total of 2,356 FFS projects in nine sectors across five governorates affected by the crisis. This is an expansion of 396 additional projects since the end of Q1. FFS continues to put emphasis on rapid intervention and implementation, particularly in the “red box” focus areas. By the end of the reporting period, 1102 of the 2,356 projects were already completed and 359 were being implemented, comprising 62% of all the projects undertaken by FFS across five affected governorates.
Twenty-five donors have contributed USD 804,447,255 as of 30 June 2018. This report provides an overview of all FFS activities underway during the second quarter of 2018, which encompasses 1 April 2018-30 June 2018.
In January 2017, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) partnered with the Implementation and Follow-up National Reconciliation Committee (IFNRC) to launch the project Support for Integrated Reconciliation in Iraq (SIRI). This project is supporting efforts to promote reconciliation as a pathway towards a more non-violent, representative and resilient Iraq.
Present in Iraq since 1976, UNDP is committed to supporting the Government and people of Iraq during their transition towards reconciliation, reform and stability. Our support ranges from promoting emergency livelihoods and community dialogue in districts impacted by the humanitarian crisis, to helping stabilize newly liberated areas, to providing technical assistance in support of governance reforms and decentralization.
