About UNDP’s work in Iraq
The people mentioned in this story are just twelve out of the 7.3 million Iraqis benefiting from UNDP’s stabilization programme in Iraq, which has been designed to quickly rehabilitate essential infrastructure and services like schools, hospitals, roads, water, and electricity, and provide job for vulnerable people.
Currently, there are more than 3,000 projects in the 31 liberated towns and districts where UNDP works. In Western Anbar — one of the first territories to be taken by ISIL and the last to be liberated — UNDP is rolling out more than 200 stabilization projects, encouraging people to return home, and laying the foundations for long-term recovery.
