Recovery and Resilience Programme

     
 

The aim of the UN’s two-year Recovery and Resilience Programme is to fast-track the social dimensions of reconstruction.

The activities in the RRP build on existing efforts and are designed to help ensure that people see tangible improvements in their daily lives at the start of the reconstruction process, rather than waiting years to benefit from large-scale infrastructure projects and structural reforms.

The RRP is aligned with the Government’s commitment to multi-dimensional reconstruction.

Projects are focused on helping people who have suffered the most, restoring confidence in the Government, revitalizing the areas at the highest risk of violence and advancing broad political participation and inclusive social harmony.

The RRP includes nine components. Three will be implemented in high priority communities where violent extremism may possibly emerge unless steps are taken to restore community trust, build confidence in the Government and open economic opportunities.

Six of the components are national in scope. These components focus on decentralizing basic services, promoting sustainable returns, providing support to survivors, accelerating community reconciliation and expanding political and social participation.

The RRP is envisioned as a nexus framework. RRP projects build on the work that has been done by humanitarian partners to support displaced and host families during the conflict and also on the efforts made by the Government and UNDP to stabilize the cities and districts newly liberated from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

The RRP is also forward looking, helping to lay the foundations in the social sectors and at the community level that will allow Iraq to reach the objectives set out in the country’s Vision 2030 and the Government’s National Framework for Reconstruction and Development.
