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.
