Iraq – Conflict, mass displacement, basic humanitarian assistance and protection
  • On 26-27 July, EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management, Christos Stylianides, visited Iraq's Kurdistan region to meet with key government officials and humanitarian partners. The Commissioner's mission was the second to Iraq this year, after the one to Baghdad, on 6-7 July. The visit came shortly after the recent allocation of additional € 25 million in EU humanitarian assistance to Iraq, bringing the total in 2015 to € 63.55 million, and followed the recent launch of the Iraq Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP), appealing to USD 497 million, for the period June-December 2015.
  • During his visit, EU Commissioner for Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Management called on all parties to the conflict to comply with International Humanitarian Law and grant access to safer ground to all affected civilians.
  • Mr Stylianides also underlined that it is imperative to provide protection and humanitarian assistance, impartially, to all most vulnerable people across the country, in a way consistent with humanitarian principles, on the basis of needs only, independently assessed, and in a proportional manner, regardless of ethnic origin, religious affiliation or territorial control. A failure to do so will only fuel further violence in the future, exacerbating sectarian, religious and ethnic tensions and causing the disaffection of an enormous civilian population.
  • Iraq crisis is a UN level 3 emergency with the number of people requiring life-saving assistance having reached the staggering figure of 8.2 million in a year. Over 3.1 million persons have been internally displaced, of these only 8% live in camps. In addition, Iraq hosts nearly 250 000 refugees from Syria. Needs continue to grow. Nevertheless, the humanitarian response remains seriously underfunded.
