Présentation
In the fall of 2016, two years after ISIL claimed the Nineveh territory, Iraqi forces made significant military gains and finally liberated the Nineveh Plains in January 2017. Many scattered families were able to return to their towns with high hopes for the future. There are, however, many challenges, as reconstruction, unemployment and limited access to livelihoods remain areas of high concern. As public safety appears to be one of the main barriers for return and resettlement, the project will work with national institutions to build capacity in this domain. This may include working with Civil Defense and linking vocational training as well as equipment resource support as means to strengthen national protective measures to safeguard citizens returning to the conflict-affected areas. This aspect of the project will be achieved through partnership with private sector companies and institutions working in the domain of public safety and civil emergency response. In synergy with the above, in Nineveh Governorate, there is a need to revive the local economy and generate local employment, which is necessary to ensure sustainable resettlement, long-term economic development and political reconciliation. The revitalization of micro- and small enterprises that were operational prior to the conflict and the support of economic and livelihood activities can play a crucial role in this process. In this view, the project will provide support to IDPs and returnees in order for them to gain technical and employable skills. By restarting micro- and small households and supporting the upgrading of Vocational Training Centers and national institutions, return to Nineveh will be facilitated and sustainable livelihoods, economic recovery and social stability promoted.
