UNDP is supporting recovery in Iraq’s newly liberated, second largest city

Since military operations to retake Mosul, Iraq, began in October 2016, fighting has displaced nearly half a million people. The conflict, following two-and-a-half years under Islamic State control, left homes, schools, health facilities, and other key infrastructure in ruins.

With both eastern and western Mosul freed, Iraq and its international partners must tackle one of the largest rebuilding and stabilization challenges the world has seen in decades.

Sami Jan, a 45-year-old villager, remembers the day flash floods erupted near his fields in Balkh district, 25 kilometres northwest of Mazar-e-Sharif city in northern Afghanistan. His crops – his sole livelihood—were washed away and he was trapped in the rising water.

“I had no way to escape,” said Sami. “I would have died that same day if an army helicopter hadn’t rescued me. But my crops were ruined.”
