By the end of the second quarter, FFS had added an additional 267 projects in a three-month period, bringing the total number of projects to 3,137. Of these, 2,108 projects were completed, 314 under implementation, 153 tendering and 562 being developed. Work was ongoing in all five liberated governorates, with the highest number of projects taking place in Ninewa (1,858), followed by Anbar (796), Salah al Din (329), Kirkuk (122) and Diyala (32).
At the end of the reporting period, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) estimated that 4,305,138 Iraqis had returned to their area of origin. This represents an increase of 93,156 people since the end of Quarter One. Despite this, 1,607,148 people remain displaced, many from one of the five FFS Priority Areas; Baiji-Hatra, Hawija, Mosul, western Anbar and western Ninewa.
One of the most notable achievements of the reporting period was the completion of Qayara General Hospital, following more than one year of rehabilitation work. The 110-bed hospital is a key medical institution and will now serve an estimated total population of 120,000 people, as well as additional surrounding areas in both the Ninewa and Salah al Din governorates.
Work began in the housing sector in western Anbar during the reporting period. To date, the FFS has rehabilitated 14,769 housing units in Ramadi and Fallujah. Focus this quarter turned to western Anbar and, during the reporting period, five projects were initiated that will ultimately see more than 600 housing units rehabilitated in Haditha and more than 200 homes rehabilitated in Anah.
In the education sector, the completion of the rehabilitation of the three Colleges on Ninewa University’s Jawsach campus in West Mosul was an important achievement. Now completed, approximately 800 students will be taught by 480 professors (192 of them women) and supported by 120 administrative staff (48 women).
Twenty-seven donors have contributed USD 1,051,797,680 as of 30 June 2019. This report provides an overview of FFS activities during the second quarter of 2019, which encompasses 1 April 2019-30 June 2019.
