Iraq Crisis Response and Resilience Programme 2019 Annual Report

Jun 19, 2020

In 2019, with more than 1.4 million IDPs still living away from their place of origin, ICRRP continued supporting the displaced and host communities across Diyala, Dohuk, Erbil and Sulaymaniyah by rehabilitating the infrastructure for basic services, supporting livelihoods, enhancing protection and promoting social cohesion.

ICRRP also responded to the needs identified in areas most affected by the ISIL crisis, focusing on the construction of critical infrastructure (e.g. schools, roads, sewerage) where these services had not previously been provided, as well as sustainable livelihoods interventions (e.g. asset recovery grants and vocational training) and training in peacebuilding and conflict prevention for community leaders, academics and youth.
