Descriptif partiel
More than four years after the end of large-scale military operations against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), the humanitarian context in Iraq remains fragile, characterized by a post-conflict environment with protracted, widespread internal displacement, limited but ongoing returns to areas of origin, eroded national social cohesion, disrupted access to basic services, destroyed livelihoods and infrastructure and increased protection risks. Approximately 1.3 million people remain internally displaced within Iraq and 4.1 million people need some form of humanitarian assistance. Some 2.4 million people are in acute need of assistance ; this represents a year-on-year increase of 600,000 people in acute need and is a result of the socioeconomic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. As of 31 July 2021, DTM identified 4,884,612 returnees (814,102 families) across 8 governorates, 38 districts, and 2,162 locations (of which 44,417 in Diyala governorate). A total of 17,562 new returnees were recorded in Round 122 (May-July 2021). This is slightly higher than the number of new returnees recorded in Round 121 (March-April 2021 ; 15,234) ; however, round 121 covered a two-month period only. Round 122 represents one of the lowest numbers of returns since 2015. Additionally, as of 31 July 2021, DTM identified 1,191,470 IDPs (204,653 households) displaced across 18 governorates, 105 districts, and 2,855 locations. This represents a decrease of 7,470 IDPs since Round 121 (March-April 2021). This is a larger decrease than what was recorded in the March-April 2021 period (6,827). IR Iraq intends to implement this project in Diyala governorate, Iraq with focus on two sectors : WASH and Community Assets rehabilitation. This project will target 3000 HHs equivalent to 18830individuals (7,028 men, 6,573 women and 2442 boys, and 2787 girls) among the most vulnerable people among returnees and local communities to enable them restore their lives in their origins and provide them with access to drinking water, increase the opportunity of improved economic status through rehabilitation of basic community assets that will help them restore their livelihoods. WASH Component The project will rehabilitate water networks, water sources and water wells, water tanks to provide people with access to clean drinking water and promote hygiene practices through community-based campaigns to increase adapting health and hygienic practices among the most vulnerable returnees and local communities in the targeted area. The project will rehabilitate 20 non-functioning water schemes and conduct 5 hygiene campaigns, the WASH component is expected to benefit 2800 HHs equivalent to 17,573 individuals (6560 men, 6133 women, 2280 boys and 2600 girls). The project team will closely coordinate with the Department of Water (DoW) to ensure that all work permissions are obtained and in line with the standards and guidance of the DoW. The project engineer will develop detailed Bill of Quantities (BoQ) for each location in coordination with DoW, then reviewed by the project coordinator and Head of Programs prior to final approval to proceed to tendering process
