SRN Project

Ninewa Governorate in north-western Iraq continues to be severely affected by the effects of the occupation by the terrorist organization Islamic State (IS) and the subsequent liberation struggles. The public social and productive infrastructure is still partially or completely destroyed, especially in the west and south of the province. Reconstruction has so far only taken place to a limited extent and only in certain areas, while other areas are neglected (e.g. Sinjar and Tel Afar). There is no strategic planning for physical and economic reconstruction at
either local or national level.

The project “Strengthening resilience in dealing with crises and conflicts in Ninewa Province” (SRN) is located in Ninewa Governorate and focuses on the districts of Mosul, Sinjar, Ba’aj and Tel Afar.
