Populations in recently newly accessible areas in Mosul and Telafar remain in need of a wide range of humanitarian assistance as retaken areas continue to register returns. As of August, 151 humanitarian partners reached 6 million people in 898 geographical locations across Iraq, representing 97 per cent of the targeted population. The bulk of humanitarian assistance was provided in Ninewa governorate, as the humanitarian community worked to address the needs of the people affected by the Mosul and Telafar operations in camps, out-of-camp settings and newly accessible areas. Clusters continue to implement summerization activities, while preparations are already underway for the coming winter season. Humanitarian partners are preparing to respond to the upcoming military operations in Hawiga and western Anbar with life-saving assistance. By the end of August, US$ 548 million of the $985 million requested in the 2017 Humanitarian Response Plan was received, representing 56 per cent of the total funds required. Up to 97 per cent of the targeted population were reached with some form of assistance, with the highest total attained by the Health Cluster. This was achieved despite underfunding of some clusters. These figures include people reached with assistance outside the appeal.
