Publication: Empowering people and building peaceful societies- Cooperation between the EU and UNDP in the Arab States region
The publication showcases results of the many initiatives carried out by the EU and UNDP in the Arab States, impacting the lives of millions of people across the region, including Iraq. It demonstrates how the EU and UNDP are natural partners, sharing the same values and objectives for advancing peace and security, human rights and development. A guiding principle of the partnership is the joint effort to help countries eradicate poverty and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a set of 17 universal goals to achieve a more peaceful, prosperous and sustainable future by 2030.
UNDP is assisting Iraq to implement national reform plans. This includes support to institutional reform and good governance through modernizing the Council of Representatives’ internal procedures, reinforcing its oversight role, and fostering inclusive participation in legislative processes and public policies. UNDP is also supporting the Parliament of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and Provincial Councils.
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.
