OUR FOCUS

Stabilization

Overview

At the request of the Government of Iraq, and with strong support from the Coalition to Degrade and Defeat ISIL, UNDP established the Funding Facility for Stabilization (FFS) in June 2015 to facilitate the return of displaced Iraqis, lay the groundwork for reconstruction and recovery, and safeguard against the resurgence of violence and extremism. UNDP’s stabilization efforts range from reconnecting communities to the electricity grid, to rehabilitating water and sewage systems, roads and bridges, to providing local people with short-term employment to remove rubble and help revitalize neighbourhoods. This investment in critical services sets the stage for recovery and resilience work, as well as longer-term reconstruction and development activities.
