Drought Risk Management
Drought has far-reaching consequences on Iraq’s environment, economy and social structure. Given its frequency, area of effect, and impact on the lives of people, it is considered a natural disaster requiring immediate attention and mitigation.
This project helps develop a national plan to guide Iraq’s response to managing the risk of drought.
What have we achieved so far?
- Formation of Steering Committees: the primary platform for discussing and mainstreaming drought-related issues.
- Selection of a Task Force from a pool of Iraqi experts to build consensus and follow-up on issues highlighted by the Steering Committees.
- Assignment of a National Senior Field Coordinator, responsible for coordinating with all relevant Iraqi ministries and institutions.
This project does not receive external donor financing, and is funded entirely by core UN resources.
