August 17, 2022


The Funding Facility for Stabilization (FFS) has completed 3,278 projects by 30 June 2022, across the five liberated governorates of Anbar, Diyala, Kirkuk, Ninewa, and Salah al-Din. This critical stabilization support has facilitated the return of 4.9 million displaced Iraqis to their areas of origin. Key infrastructure achievements between April to June 2022 included the rehabilitation of the external consultancy clinic for women and children in Ramadi Teaching Hospital that provides access to improved health care, benefiting approximately 550,000 persons in the area. In Ninewa, eight police directorates, 22 police stations, five national security buildings, and three courts were refurbished, contributing to increased safety and security in the area.

The FFS continues to work closely with all relevant stakeholders and is increasingly utilizing an integrated approach to stabilization, scaling up “softer” programming components to support the return of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) to their communities. The FFS is increasingly focusing on providing an enabling environment for peace through strengthening community-level peace mechanisms and creating platforms for dialogue among the communities, government representatives, and members of the security sector. The FFS will continue to mainstream gender, human rights, conflict sensitivity, and sustainability principles, central to its activities across all four windows of work in the liberated governorates.
