Baghdad/ Iraq TradeLink: On 31 January 2017, the Diet of Japan has approved a new package of  humanitarian, counter-terrorism and social stabilization support to Iraq amounting to approximately 100 million US dollars, which was proposed by the Government as part of its supplementary budget of FY 2016, the Japanese embassy reported.

This additional support in response to the ongoing crisis in Iraq will be widely implemented in the various fields including food security, water, sanitation, hygiene, health, nutrition, shelter, non-food Items, livelihood, social cohesion, vocational training, protection, gender-based violence, mine action, and rehabilitation/construction of infrastructure through UN agencies, international humanitarian organizations and Japanese NGOs.

Japan’s contribution aims to alleviate the plight of Internal Displaced Persons (IDPs), Syrian Refugees and the host communities in Mosul, its adjacent areas and IDPs/Refugees concentrated areas as well as to facilitate IDP’s return to newly liberated areas from ISIL.

This assistance is part of Japan’s commitment made in the Pledging Conference in Support of Iraq in Washington D.C held in last July 2016, where Japan intended to maintain the same level of assistance extended to Iraq in 2016 throughout 2017 and 2018, with the recognition that seamless assistance to Iraq is vital to the stabilization of Iraq. Japan has provided grant assistance to Iraq, amounting approximately 350 million US dollars for IDPs, refugees and host communities affected by ISIL.
