Iraq Stabilisation
Description: Mosul is one of the largest stabilisation challenges Iraqis and the UN have ever faced. More than 1,100 projects are underway in 23 cities, restoring water and electricity, repairing schools, hospitals and transport networks, and putting tens of thousands of people back to work. 95% of all stabilisation work is contracted through the local private sector. Local companies are rebuilding their own cities employing local labour. Stabilization is about speed and functionality so that residents can return home safely, with dignity, and build back their cities. The top priority now is Mosul. 300 projects are already underway, many started even as the fighting was continuing.

Recovery in Somalia: How Do We Sustain Gains Against al-Shabab?
Description: Somalia’s tenuous progress toward stability will only be sustained if the newly elected government steps up delivery of desperately-needed services to its citizens, offering a viable alternative to al-Shabab extremists. Yet six million Somalis are at risk of famine due to drought, and the looming drawdown of the regional peacekeeping force, AMISOM, threatens to derail the country’s fragile transition if the training of Somali forces is not expedited. Former Somali Minister of Planning and International Cooperation Abdirahman Yusuf Ali Aynte (Abdi Aynte) and U.S. Institute of Peace President Nancy Lindborg will discuss the challenges and potential solutions in a webcast conversation. Post your question for the discussion on Twitter (with #USIPSomalia) or with YouTube chat.

Building disaster-resilient communities in Myanmar’s Rakhine State
Description: Considered one of the most disaster-prone areas in Myanmar/Burma, the coastal state of Rakhine is no stranger to natural disasters ranging from floods, cyclones, landslides to earthquakes. More often than not, these events have a larger impact on those already highly vulnerable and who are least equipped to cope, such as the elderly, women, children, and people with disabilities. With the aim of helping at-risk communities in preparing and responding to disasters, the Myanmar Consortium for Community Resilience (MCCR), a consortium of humanitarian organisations formed with the support of the European Commission, has introduced an inclusive community-based disaster risk reduction (DRR) programme to include the most vulnerable groups in disaster preparedness activities. With knowledge and skills obtained during the programme, they are now able to protect themselves, their families and livelihoods. Video by ACF
