Iraq Humanitarian and Stabilisation Package review and management response
Summary of publication
“In April 2017, Prime Minister Turnbull and Foreign Minister Bishop announced a three-year AUD100 million aid package to respond to the humanitarian crisis in Iraq. The Iraq Humanitarian and Stabilisation Package (the Package) contributed to addressing the humanitarian needs of Iraq’s vulnerable populations and communities, after the territorial defeat of Da’esh.
An independent review was commissioned to evaluate the relevance, effectiveness, and sustainability of the Package. The review found the Package was appropriately conceived and has been effective in responding to a highly complex operating environment and cross section of needs.
The Package was designed to respond to the humanitarian needs of Iraq’s most vulnerable conflict-affected populations and support Iraqi communities on a path toward greater resilience, social cohesion and stability. By working through trusted partners, progress has been achieved in simultaneously addressing short and medium-term humanitarian needs, rapid recovery and stabilisation activities in retaken areas, and advancing social cohesion within conflict-affected communities.”
