SHARED FUTURE : ENABLING DURABLE SOLUTIONS FOR A COHESIVE AND DIVERSE NINEWA PLAINS

Irak

Titre : SHARED FUTURE : ENABLING DURABLE SOLUTIONS FOR A COHESIVE AND DIVERSE NINEWA PLAINS

USAID’s Shared Future project works with youth and community and religious leaders to support the durable return for internally displaced persons from the Ninewa Plain.

Pays : Irak
Localisation : Ninewa Plain (Bartella, Bashiqa, Nimrod, Telesqof, Tel Kayf, Qaraqosh, and Wanna)

Durée : June 2018 - September 2023

Contexte : The violent multi-year occupation by the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in the north of Iraq forced many of the religious and ethnic minority groups to flee, breaking up communities and exacerbating fragility across the region. As internally displaced persons (IDPs) try to return home, ISIS’s invasion created significant destruction in the social fibers binding the diverse communities of Ninewa Plain and western Ninewa. Lack of trust and tolerance both within their communities and with other neighboring communities remain serious barriers to a successful and durable return of IDPs.

Descriptif

Along with its partners, USAID works with youth, and community and religious leaders to : * Increase mutual understanding, tolerance, and trust both within their communities and with other communities through the innovative “3 B’s” (binding, bonding, bridging) methodology developed by CRS ; * Improve vocational and leadership skills to help youth gain dignified employment or start their own businesses ; * Improve youth livelihood opportunities through targeted vocational training aimed at fostering sustainable income generation.
