In 2016, different humanitarian actors came together prior to the World Humanitarian Summit to develop the Charter on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action. Despite the milestone that the Charter represents, most of its recommendations are not being implemented in the field, especially in the Iraq humanitarian response, even by organisations that endorsed it.
Distinguished members of the Security Council,
I have the honour to introduce the third report of the Secretary-General pursuant to paragraph 7 of resolution 2299 (2016), as well as the fourteenth report of the Secretary-General pursuant to paragraph 4 of resolution 2107 (2013) on the issue of missing Kuwaiti and third-country nationals and property.
Baghdad, 23 May 2017 – More than 1900 health workers and volunteers on Sunday 21 May, 2017 kick started a mass polio vaccination campaign targeting approximately 332 000 children from conflict affected Mosul and other underserved areas in Ninewa Governorate.
The roads infrastructure is particularly damaged around Mosul AlJadeda and Al-Rabee. In Al-Rabee over 50km of road infrastructure has been damaged. In an effort to restrict acces to Mosul, ISIL had erected several barricades made of sand to block access roads to the city. Satellite images suggest that some of these barricades still remain.
Control of access roads information provided by UNDSS on 25 April 2017.
Information based on satellite imagery dated 26 April 2017.
The assessment is done with the Flash Environment Assessment Tool (FEAT).
FEAT provides a standardized and scientifically rigorous methodology to help disaster workers identify, assess, and prioritize industrial hazards and impacts due to chemical releases for disaster preparedness and response.
It also provides the entry point for more comprehensive environmental assessments.
Although there are thousands of potentially hazardous operations,
Iraq - Displacement and return movements continue across Iraq, affecting nearly five million people. Funding for humanitarian operations is urgently needed, particularly with new displacement caused by the intensification of operations to retake Mosul.

Syria: During the reporting period, 312,205 beneficiaries were assisted with WASH,
Health, NFI, and Livelihood support by IOM teams in Damascus, Rural Damascus, Aleppo, AlHassakeh, Hama, Homs, Idleb and Lattakia.
UNHCR, the UN refugee agency, has opened another camp in response to a recent surge in the number of newly-displaced Iraqis fleeing the military offensive in western Mosul. An estimated 40,000 people fled areas of north-west Mosul and the Old City over a four-day period late last week.
Between 26 April and 11 May 2017, most observed damage has occurred in the right bank (western Mosul), where airstrikes have hit residential neighbourhoods. As in previous weeks, Al-Rabee was hit hardest and the area has seen an additional 171 heavily damaged or completely de- stroyed residential buildings since 26 April 2017. Only severely damaged and completely destroyed buildings can be identi ed with satellite imag- ery. For that reason, the amount of damaged buildings is likely higher than the amount indicated on this dashboard.
