SUPPORTING THE RETURN OF DISPLACED POPULATIONS IN NINEWA PLAIN AND WESTERN NINEWA

Irak

Titre : SUPPORTING THE RETURN OF DISPLACED POPULATIONS IN NINEWA PLAIN AND WESTERN NINEWA

USAID is supporting the return of displaced populations from ethnic and religious minorities through an integrated, multi-sectoral approach that tailors services to the unique needs of the communities that call this region home.

Pays : Irak
Localisation : Ninewa Plain (Qaraqosh, Nimrod, Bashiqa, Tel Kayf) and western Ninewa (Sinjar and Sinuni)

Durée : September 2018 - September 2022

Contexte : The occupation of the so-called Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) left the Ninewa governorate in a state of ruin, with significant destruction to housing, essential services and other infrastructure in many areas. The severe living conditions, as well as continued security concerns and loss of livelihood,, have impeded members from persecuted ethnic and religious minorities from safely returning, thereby contributing to a continuation of protracted displacement for these and other populations.
