Background and Objectives
According to the World Bank and Government of Iraq’s Damage and Needs Assessment of Affected Governorates (2018), more than 138,000 houses were damaged or destroyed across the country during the conflict with ISIL. Statistics reveal that housing has experienced the bulk of the damage, impacting the low-income population of affected governorates in particular. Damage to housing is one of the main obstacles to the return of IDPs. Support to resolve the housing crisis in liberated areas is an urgent need – not only for IDPs who wish to return but also for host communities who have been bearing the heavy burden of hosting high numbers of IDPs for many years.
The EU-funded “ Strengthening the Long-Term Resilience of Subnational Authorities in countries affected by the Syrian and Iraqi Crises ” programme aims to address the resilience and stabilization needs of impacted and vulnerable communities in all sectors through supporting longer term efforts for improved systems and capacities for local development, and facilitating shorter and immediate results that would help host communities and refugees improve their state of living with tangible benefits. The planned interventions are aligned with the progressive achievement by Iraq of SDG 11.
The overall objective of the project is to strengthen the long-term resilience of targeted subnational authorities and their host, displaced and refugee populations affected by the Syrian and Iraqi crises. This will be achieved through three specific outcomes:
1. Subnational authorities will have enhanced capacities to engage in holistic, area-based planning and will consider various scenarios that respond to the needs of host, refugee, displaced and returning populations;
2. Service delivery will be increasingly responsive, and generate greater social stability outcomes, based on the needs of host, refugee, displaced and returning populations;
3. Subnational authorities will be empowered to facilitate local economic development and will have better access to municipal investment that benefits the extension of safe public services and economic opportunities for host, refugee, displaced and returning populations.
Resilience programme activities will be conducted within Mosul municipality and will aim at:
1) Rehabilitation/upgrading of housing units: The focus of the activity will be on self-rehabilitation of houses with technical support provided by UN-Habitat’s specialized staff. This approach will also create job opportunities and support local livelihoods.
2) Addressing housing, land and property rights: The project will recognize and formalize occupancy rights through the Social Tenure Domain Model (STDM) in Ninewa Governorate.
3) Rehabilitation of water, sanitation and hygiene infrastructure: Based on detailed field assessments, small-scale community water, sanitation and hygiene infrastructure will be rehabilitated in partnership with relevant service providers. Maintenance manuals will be produced to ensure that service providers, such as the Directorate of Water, can operate and maintain the rehabilitated infrastructure.
