Résumé du poste


Iraq has suffered nearly 39 years of conflict and unrest starting with the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s which lasted for 8 years and resulted in around a million people being killed as well as dealing a significant blow to the Iraqi economy. This was closely followed by the annexing of Kuwait and subsequent First Gulf War in 90s which saw heavy causalities and destruction of the Iraqi infrastructure. The 2003 invasion of Iraq by the US led coalition saw even more upheaval and conflict for this population. After a short period of relative stability between 2009 and 2012, the rise of Islamic State group (ISg) in 2014 and its seizure of, at one point, an estimated 40% of Iraq including Fallujah, Tikrit and Mosul, Iraq saw mass population displacement and the exposure of the people of Iraq to multiple and cumulative acts of violence. The military operation to retake areas under IS control has been officially completed end of 2017, however some pockets of ISg fighters remain active up to this day.

Iraq as a whole has been facing one of the most critical humanitarian crisis of the moment. Starting from 2014, the conflict engendered mass displacements, and left up to this day more than 8.7 million people requiring humanitarian assistance. In the end of 2018, more than 4.1 million people returned to their area of origin, and over 1.8 million are still displaced. In addition, 225,000 Syrian refugees who have been displaced since 2013 are still living in Iraq.


The Field Coordinator is responsible for the proper functioning of both bases, and the proper implementation of programs developed on the bases.
