Descriptif partiel
The overall objective of this project is to contribute to decrease the vulnerability of the targeted internally displaced persons, returnees and host communities in Mosul, Ninewa Governorate, Iraq. At present, Ninewa is the governorate in Iraq with the largest need in terms of humanitarian interventions. As many as 3 million people are expected to require some form of humanitarian support in 2018. The needs are and will continue to be the greatest for people directly impacted by the recent conflict and fighting in and around Mosul. After almost nine months of military operations in Mosul the city was liberated and the military operations have ended. The crisis surpassed the worst-case planning scenarios foreseen by humanitarian agencies, displacing almost 1 million people from the city. By the end of August 2017, almost 100.000 people from West Mosul and villages on the western bank of the Tigris have returned to their homes. Returnees are mainly moving to the outskirts of town, as the Old City has been too badly damaged for people to return in the near future. The government of Iraq is strongly encouraging more IDP families now located in different areas of Ninewa governorate to return to their origin in Mosul, thus coordinated support interventions are urgently required since both East and West Mosul lack essential public services while displaced families, host communities and returnees lack resources and opportunities to gain an income. This project is part of the coordinated humanitarian efforts/HRP to address the Mosul crisis and it aims to focus on two sectors of interventions : Food Security and WASH related activities in both East and West Mosul. Food Security and Livelihood (3000 HHs) A significant part of the millions of food insecure households in Iraq are located in Ninewa Governorate where access to food is severely reduced for the conflict-affected population. Malnutrition is prevalent both among displaced, returnee and host communities. According to the WFP Vulnerability Assessment and Mapping report from August 2017, families are borrowing food and/or are relying on help from relatives and friends. Thousands of families are often forced to restrict the food consumption of their adult members since the quantities are just enough to feed the children. Although negative coping strategies among IDPs decreased between July and August 2017, 41% to 22%, the need remains huge among IDPs, as well as among returnees and host communities. According to Iraqi government figures there is also a lack of commodities in the market. Through IR Iraq and WFP’s joint food security call assessment project, community members inform that when and if food is available on the market, people are forced to make their purchases on credit since income opportunities remain scarce and prices are above the purchase power of most families . This project will target 3300 severely food insecure households in East and West Mosul under the food security and livelihood component of this project. 3000 household will be provided with a food package containing : 25 kg wheat flour, 10 kg rice, 10 kg sugar, 10 kg lentils/pulses, 5 l cooking oil and 850 g tomato sauce.
