In cooperation with the European Union, NRC and DRC are working towards alleviating obstacles to sustainable returns for conflict-affected individuals and support them to recover dignity and resilience in the face of adversity.

 

Ninewa, Dyiala and Salah Al Din have been some of the governorates most affected by the IDP crisis, and have seen the highest numbers of returns since 2017. With damaged key infrastructures, weakened social systems and a scarcity of both governmental and humanitarian service provision, the strain on communities is further impacting social cohesion, already severely affected by the crisis’ resulting ethno-religious tensions.

 

The project aims to:

 

Supporting equitable access to assistance, protection and durable solutions for displacement-affected populations

 

  • Building local capacity to better manage displacements and returns through the Urban Displacement and Out of Camp pillar of community engagement, communication with communities and support to local coordination.

 

  • Reducing the likelihood of secondary displacement and increase the resilience of affected communities by empowering communities to achieve durable solutions.

 

Supporting the development of Small, Medium Enterprises (SME)

 

  • Improve the self-sufficiency of displacement affected individuals in order to lay a long-term foundation for durable solutions by empowering women, youth and unemployed men
