Funding Facility for Stabilization Quarter I Report 2017
By the First Quarter 2017, the Funding Facility for Stabilization (FFS) expanded its work to cover a total of 22 areas and increase the number of projects to over 500. This Report outlines the progress made from 1 January to 31 March 2017 by FFS in the governorates of Ninewah, Salah al-Din, Anbar, Diyala and Kirkuk.
Significant progress was made in upscaling activities in Ninewah following the liberation of east Mosul. Over 90 projects have got underway in the city, whilst good progress was made to support returnees and vulnerable communities in the remote Ninewah Plains and western Anbar.
The work of FFS has improved the conditions for the return of over 1.6 million Iraqis to their homes, rehabilitating vital infrastructure in areas of water, health, education and municipalities amongst others and providing essential immediate livelihood opportunities. At present, over 3 million Iraqis are internally displaced and the continuance of FFS activities remains an essential component to stabilization in Iraq.
