The project “Private Sector Development and Employment Promotion in Iraq”, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the German  Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) aims to improve the economic and social perspectives of young people and returning refugees in Iraq. Volatile oil prices, insecurity, policy constraints, and a saturated public sector contribute to a high youth unemployment rate and limited private sector growth, recently also amplified by the Covid-19  pandemic. The project is based on two modules covering respectively support to economic policy reforms and employment promotion.  

The first module of the project aims at supporting the Iraqi government and the government of the Kurdish Region with the planning and implementation of economic reforms towards a better investment and business climate. It follows a multi-stakeholder approach and comprises 5  outputs related to (1) capacity-building for economic policy, (2) public-private dialogues, (3)  civil society involvement for economic reforms, (4) support to evidence-based policymaking, and (5) corruption prevention and business integrity. 

The second module aims at improving the employment prospects in the private sector in Iraq.  This is done through (1) youth skills development by offering and increasing needs-orientation  of vocational qualification, (2) capacity building of training institutions, (3) media campaigns to  increase the attractiveness of the private sector as an employer for young women and men, 
(4) support for growth-oriented micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSME) and (5)  Market innovations for business development and entrepreneurship promotion. PSD is demanding services for web development for the years 2021 until 2023. The minimum requirements of the experts are as follows.
