    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.

    This fact sheet provides a detailed description on the intended support to the livestock sector under FAO Iraq EU funded project "Support to agricultural livelihoods of rural and peri-urban returnees and communities in Ninewah Governorate, Iraq". Livestock is a major contributor to income in Iraq, and Ninewa governorate is a major reservoir of livestock in Iraq, mainly of sheep production. Beneficiaries of this intervention will benefit from the provision of veterinary services, processing and marketing, development of fodder crops and other feeding technologies, and training to strengthen their capacity in improved livestock management and hygiene. Extension agents from Ministry of Agriculture, private veterinarians and staff from NGOs and other organizations working with other livestock projects will also benefit from the training sessions and extension manuals and leaflets produced by the project.
