    Iraq - Humanitarian Response Plan 2018 2018

    With almost all areas controlled by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) retaken by the Government of Iraq by the end of 2017, focus in 2018 will shift from humanitarian operations to recovery and resilience. However, significant humanitarian needs remain, as conflict has severely impacted the agriculture sector and left 2 million people food insecure, including internally displaced people, host communities, returnees, residents and refugees. To address food intake gaps families often adopt negative coping mechanisms, depleting savings and generating debts. FAO is committed to restoring livestock production – one of the pillars of Iraq’s agriculture sector – to improve food security and self-reliance.

    There is a strong imperative to rebuild Iraq’s agriculture sector as it is a major provider of employment and income in rural and peri-urban areas. This will allow for the return of millions of internally displaced people (IDP) in Iraq to their areas of origin, following the retaking of Iraqi areas that used to be under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) – i.e. all or parts of the five affected governorates of Anbar, Diyala, Kirkuk, Ninewa and Salah al-Din. The impact of conflict caused by ISIL on the agriculture sector has been devastating and includes huge population movements, destruction of and damage to water systems, irrigation facilities and other agricultural infrastructure, disruption of value chains and losses of personal assets, crop and livestock production and food supplies. In response, the Government of Iraq has developed the Iraq Reconstruction and Development Framework (IRFD), which contributes to the Iraq Vision 2030 and National Development Plan (2018–2022). Guided by IRFD, Iraq’s United Nations Country Team (UNCT) formulated the Recovery and Resilience Programme (RRP), which prioritizes three (out of nine ) components to be implemented in the retaken areas with high priority: (i) preventing violent extremism; (ii) restoring communities; and (iii) restoring agriculture and water systems. The RRP was presented at the Kuwait International Conference for Iraq's Reconstruction in February 2018, which was jointly organized by the Government of Iraq, the World Bank and the Kuwait Fund for Arab Economic Development.

    Years of conflict in Iraq has left 3.2 million people food insecure, including those who depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. Humanitarian needs remain significant after eight months since military operations to retake Mosul from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) started. According to figures from the Iraqi Government, on 28 June 2017, more than 897 000 people had been displaced from Mosul and surrounding areas since the offensive began on 17 October 2016. As of 28 June 201 7, 152 313 people had returned to their homes in eastern Mosul and 62 513 people to western Mosul. Military operations continue in western Mosul, where concerns remain for the protection of civilians in the remaining ISIL-controlled areas in the city.
