    Iraq signs $33m agreement with UNDP to support stabilisation efforts


    The Government of Iraq signed an agreement with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) under which Iraq will make a contribution of US $33 million to support stabilisation projects throughout the country.

    The projects include the rehabilitation of infrastructure and the provision of basic services such as water, electricity, health care, housing and education, in liberated and areas affected, particularly in Nineveh, Anbar, Salahuddin, Diyala, Kirkuk and Basra provinces.

    With this financial contribution, which will be administrated through the UNDP’s Funding Facility for Stabilisation (FFS), the Government of Iraq becomes one of the top 10 donors to UNDP’s stabilisation efforts in the country.

    Iraqi officials say the agreement reflects Iraq’s commitment to the strategic partnership with the United Nations aimed at restoring stability in liberated areas, returning displaced people, and building and rehabilitating infrastructure.

    The UNDP in partnership with the Iraqi government has to date completed more than 2,000 stabilisation projects, benefiting more than 8 million Iraqis.

    The UNDP’s Funding Facility for Stabilisation (FFS) was established in June 2015 at the request of the Iraqi government and with the support of the Global Coalition to defeat Daesh.
