Signing ceremony for new projects in Sulaymaniyah, KRI

Under Module SO4 – Supporting Local Administrations, Qudra Programme went from strength to strength in North Iraq by signing 6 new projects worth over 250.000 € to improve living conditions in Sulaymaniyah.

A part of the Quick-Impact Projects benefiting refugees, IDPs and local population in host communities, this new achievement will ensure access to electricity and clean water for more than 50.000 persons as well as improving care and treatment services for more than 50.000 children with disabilities yearly.

The projects will be implementing by project teams and related Directorates under the support and monitoring of GIZ.

Qudra supports the regional government in North Iraq in strengthening the Joint Crisis Coordination Centre (JCC) and its governorates’ offices in Erbil, Duhok and Sulaymaniyah. Qudra, in cooperation with the regional government and strong support from its political partners in North Iraq/KRI, has set up a facility to provide funding and technical support for community-based projects benefiting refugees, IDPs and local population in host communities in order to improve access to and provision of basic services. This action, guided by community participation and ownership as the essential principles, improves the living conditions of the local and displaced populations residing in host communities.

Within the scope of Qudra, the module SO4 is being implemented by GIZ and Hungarian Interchurch Aid (HIA).
