Overview

As Iraqi authorities began retaking control of cities and towns, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) was specifically requested by the Government to help stabilize these areas. In responding to this emerging and urgent need, UNDP established the Funding Facility for Immediate Stabilization (FFIS) in June 2015. Starting with an initial capitalization of US$7 million, the Facility has received more than $400 million from 23 donors. Building on the success of the first channel, a second stabilization channel, the Funding Facility for Expanded Stabilization (FFES) was established in April 2016, capitalized at $100 million. More than 800 projects are now underway.More
