A historic moment for Iraq as the government signed an agreement with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) for a $33 million commitment for stabilization activities nationwide.
This will help fund rehabilitation projects including infrastructure and access to potable water, healthcare, housing and education.
The Secretary General of the Council of Ministers, His Excellency Mr. Hamid Al-Ghizi said: “Through this agreement, the Iraqi government seeks to implement projects in various affected geographic areas, while focusing on those areas that have experienced the most damage.
“The agreement will mostly focus on infrastructure and water, electricity, health and other projects, as our provinces still need more infrastructure and support for basic services. The agreement also reaffirms Iraq's commitment to the strategic partnership with the United Nations Development Programme to restoring stability in the liberated areas, enabling displaced communities to return, and building and rehabilitating the infrastructure in the provinces that have been affected by the tragic circumstances that have passed through the country,” added His Excellency Mr. Al-Ghizi.
