Stå stærkt: Genopretning af levebrød hos fordrevne befolkninger i Irak

Project Code: 
IRQ-BPRM-002
Danish
Project Status: 
Aktivt
Project Background: 

Baggrund:

The millions of persons displaced by conflict in Iraq constitute a humanitarian crisis of significant proportions.  Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) have often lost all their household assets and remain dependent on government services and the humanitarian community for survival.  Earning opportunities are few, and many lack either the capital or skill to reestablish livelihoods activities.  Even when it is safe to move back to home locations, the lack of economic opportunity can be a barrier to rebuilding lives and livelihoods.

Project Aims: 

Mål:

 To support emergency livelihoods for IDPs and promote a return to economic self-sufficiency for host community members and returnees

Aktiviteter:

Project activities include   i) cash for work to support income for vulnerable households  ii) materials and training for small-scale agricultural production  iii) restoring water supply for irrigation and iv) support to re-establish small businesses in conflict-damaged areas

Opfyldelse af afgørende behov under den voksende flygtningekrise i det nordlige Irak

Project Code: 
IRQ-SHUM-005
Danish
Project Status: 
Aktivt
Project Background: 

Baggrund:

As the conflict in Iraq goes on, a complex situation of displacements and returns is expected to continue throughout 2017.  In some areas, new waves of displacement will result in families needing shelter and basic items of assistance, as well as psychosocial support. Households already displaced and living in temporary or interim shelter (both in formal camps and in non-camp settings) require ongoing help, including to survive the extremes of weather in winter / summer. Where people are able to return to their former homes, assistance is needed to restore basic services, for example water supply.

Project Aims: 

Mål:

The project’s overall aim is to address critical and ongoing physical needs and protection concerns people affected by conflict-induced displacement in northern Iraq.  

Specific objectives are 1) to address basic NFI, shelter and water needs of those affected by immediate or protracted displacement and increase coping capacity for conflict-affected population and 2) To deliver protection-related services to conflict-affected population, with emphasis on overcoming psychosocial challenges (specific focus on children, youth and their families).  

The project is designed to meet emerging critical needs in a changing displacement context, and to alleviate the impact of the displacement crisis and conflict damage on IDPs, host communities and returnees

Aktiviteter:

Project activities include i) the timely distribution of emergency shelter/ non-food items to people affected by displacement in a variety of locations   ii) support for shelter rehabilitation  iii) renovation of drinking water supply in conflict-damaged areas  iv) provision of psychosocial support, learning and recreation opportunities via Community Centres and Family Protection Units.
