IOM Iraq Special Report: Shelter
International Organization for Migration (IOM) field staff monitor the needs and conditions of families affected by displacement as well as members of vulnerable host communities throughout Iraq’s 18 governorates. Moni-tors conduct interviews with communities affected by displacement and consult local councils, mayors, mukhtars, and other religious and community leaders.
The following report aims to highlight the increasingly urgent housing situation in Iraq. As the number of inter-nally displaced persons (IDPs) has grown over the past years, communities have come under pressure to accom-modate the associated population movement. Displaced and host community families alike are significantly af-fected by the country’s shortage of appropriate housing, a shortage that affects the health and livelihoods of vul-nerable Iraqi communities.
