The humanitarian crisis in Iraq is entering a new phase. Combat operations against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have ended and hundreds of thousands of displaced people are returning to their homes and communities. Retaken areas are being cleared of explosive hazards and rubble and major efforts are underway to restore electricity, water and sewage grids, re-establish the Government’s social protection floor, jump-start local economies and open schools and health centres. Although displaced camps are being consolidated and decommissioned, the humanitarian needs for internally displaced persons (IDPs), returnees, and host communities remain high in Iraq. The 2019 Iraq HRP estimates that approximately 6.7 million people are in critical need of support. At the same time, the continued crisis in Syria has meant there remain many vulnerable Syrians in Iraq, especially in the northern region, who face daily socio-economic challenges. The large-scale return of IDPs does not always mean that conditions in areas of origin are conducive to an early and sustainable recovery of infrastructures, relations and lives. In fact, despite the improving security situation in many conflict-affected areas of Iraq, the lack of critical services, infrastructure, livelihoods opportunities, and the continued inter-community tensions and violence have contributed to protracted displacement. As of the end of October 2018, IOM Displacement Tracking Matrix reports that 1,866,594 individuals remain displaced, while 4,113,624 people had returned to their areas of origin.

IOM Iraq was established in 2003, and has built a strong network of staff, offices and logistics capacity. With more than 1,500 staff and main offices in Baghdad, Erbil, and Basra and 16 sub-offices in key locations, IOM works in cooperation with the Government of Iraq to provide support across all of Iraq’s 18 governorates. IOM responded rapidly to the 2014-2017 displacement crisis through a multi-sectoral humanitarian response, to support Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and host communities. In 2018-2019, IOM will continue contributing to addressing humanitarian needs and reducing vulnerability through providing assistance to vulnerable migrants, victims of trafficking and at risk populations, where needed, linked to longer-term interventions, supporting reintegration and durable solutions of displaced populations in identified areas of high return, tailored to local needs and priorities, supporting the Government and civil society actors to create conditions for the revitalization, stabilization and reform of social, economic and political life, and supporting the Government to manage safe, orderly and regular migration, including in pursuit of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Direct implementation, tailored approaches based on strong data analysis and a holistic approach significantly boost the strength of interventions.

IOM works in partnership with UN agencies, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Community Service Organizations (CSOs). As a member of the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) for Iraq, IOM works with Iraqi authorities in support of national development strategies and the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF). IOM is a member of the UN Humanitarian Country Team (UNHCT), national co-coordinator of the Camp Coordination and Camp Management Cluster (CCCM), and co-coordinator of the sub National Central/South Shelter-Non-Food Item (S-NFI) Cluster. IOM chairs the Returns Working Group (RWG), and co-chairs the Steering Committee for the Community Resource Centres (CRCS) to support returns of displaced populations.

IOM appealed projects below are part of the inter-agency Iraq Humanitarian Response Plan 2019 and 3RP Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan 2019 -2020. Furthermore, IOM has included additional interventions under Iraq Recovery and Resilience Programme to support government, civil society actors and communities to create conditions for the revitalization and stabilization in Iraq, that are in line with IOM’s Migration Crisis Operational Framework to address migration issues more effectively.

Overall Targeted Beneficiaries: 1,200,000 individuals.
