Responding to humanitarian needs in Northern Iraq

Well-targeted responses to current needs

The humanitarian crisis in Iraq has been one of the most rapidly unfolding in the world and is a protracted crisis. An estimated 10 million people in Iraq require immediate humanitarian assistance. Since January 2014, the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) have made significant territorial gains with its tactic of brutal killings. Since then, 3.3 million people have fled their homes. Displaced persons are currently living in more than 3,000 locations throughout the country; more than 90% are living outside of camps, putting an enormous strain on the hosting communities.
