Despite ongoing violence and displacements across Iraq, UN agencies and humanitarian partners are responding to the ongoing humanitarian crisis with lifesaving programs, from Basra Governorate in the southeast of the country to Anbar Governorate west of Baghdad, to Dahok Governorate in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. The country is facing an escalating emergency with up to 1.8 million Iraqis displaced since January. This at-risk population requires shelter, basic humanitarian assistance and protection in over 1500 sites nationwide. Since the start of the initial massive displacement in Anbar Governorate in January, UN agencies have been delivering emergency aid across all of Iraq – complementing efforts from local authorities to bring assistance to its people - in close cooperation with Iraqis and international non-governmental organisations (NGOs).
