| Overview |
As a result of the violence in Ninewa governorate, the United Nations estimates that approximately 300,000 people have been displaced, with this number expected to rise significantly in the coming period.
Almost 80% of the displaced in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq are housed among the host communities. An outbreak assessment team is in the Region to monitor risks of outbreaks of measles, polio and cholera.
Natural disasters, including drought, earthquakes, floods, and wildfires, as well as ongoing complex emergencies and limited government capacity in the region, present significant challenges to vulnerable populations in Europe, the Middle East, and Central Asia (EMCA). Between FY 2004 and FY 2013, USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA) and USAID’s Office of Food for Peace (USAID/FFP) provided assistance in response to a range of disasters, including floods, wildfires, winter emergencies, and complex crises.
