IOM Iraq press note, 18 October 2016 Iraq - IOM Iraq is undertaking research to investigate factors that limit displaced Iraqis’ willingness to return to their place of origin.

(Baghdad, 21 September 2016): Humanitarian agencies are racing against the clock to prepare for the humanitarian impact of the military campaign to oust the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) from Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city.

Baghdad, 21 September 2016– The Government of New Zealand has contributed US$1 million to UNDP’s Funding Facility for Immediate Stabilization (FFIS), which finances fast-track initiatives in areas liberated from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

Salah Aldin, 3 September 2016: In light of the unfolding humanitarian needs in Salah Aldin governorate and the expected influx of internally displaced population (IDPs) from Mosul with the start of the government liberation operations, WHO held the first health cluster meeting in Salah Aldin Directorate of Health (DoH) in Tikrit city, capital of the governorate, to discuss means for strengthening the coordination mechanism of the health partners working in the governorate and their response to the urgent health needs of the IDPs in Beji and Sharqat districts.

Baghdad,1 July 2016 - As a symbol of national reconciliation, the return of displaced Iraqis is a process of utmost importance to UNHCR. However, it requires conducive conditions on the ground. This is why UNHCR insists that the return process has to be carefully planned and carried out on the basis of the international humanitarian principles of voluntary, non-discriminatory, safe and sustainable returns.
