The Qudra Programme is a regional action financed by the EU Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian Crisis, the 'Madad' Fund and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) seeking to strengthen resilience for Syrian refugees, IDPs, and host communities in response to the Syrian and Iraqi crises. The programme is jointly implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, Expertise France (EF), Spanish Agency for International Development (AECID), and Hungarian Interchurch Aid (HIA) in programme partner countries of Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The intervention draws upon the experience of bilateral projects implemented by these agencies in the partner countries of the programme.
The five modules (Specific Objectives, SO) of the programme are:
· Education Infrastructure
· Skills Training
· Social Cohesion
· Supporting Local Administration
· Facilitating Dialogue and Dissemination The multi-sectoral approach enables the Qudra Programme to address the challenges of refugees, IDPs, and host communities in a comprehensive and coordinated manner. Additionally, implementation on a regional level creates opportunities for regional exchange and learning. Qudra in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq under Module 4 aims at strengthening the capacities and portfolios of local governmental and non-governmental organisations providing vocational education, employment promotion, and small business start-up support to improve economic (re-) integration opportunities for returning, displaced, and local population in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
