UNDP, in partnership with the Government of Iraq and the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIL, established the Funding Facility for Immediate Stabilization (FFIS) to quickly implement activities to stabilize newly liberated areas of Iraq in June 2015. FFIS is governed by a Steering Committee co-chaired by the Prime Minister's Office and the DSRSG/RC. The Funding Facility supports four sets of activities, each with a dedicated window. All activities support the needs identified by local authorities (Governors’ offices, line departments, mayors), based on priorities identified at the local level through consultations. The Provincial Command Cells endorse the activities.
1. Window One: Public works and light infrastructure rehabilitation.
2. Window Two: Livelihoods support that jumpstart local economy and generate income for households, particularly families returning to their homes. 3. Window Three: Capacity support for local governments, boosting their immediate response capacity to cope with the challenges arising during stabilization.
4. Window Four: Community reconciliation initiatives that help local leaders and community groups promote social cohesion and dialogue.
Under Window 3, to ensure the proper use and maintenance of Nineveh public infrastructure (electrical power substations, water treatment plants, hospitals etc.) FFS intends to organize a specialized technical training for Overhead Transmission Lines Design, Construction and Maintenance .
