Iraq War Damaged Shelter Rehabilitation

Interactive Dashboard


Although 4.3 million people have returned to areas of origin, 1.6 million IDPs remain displaced as of 30th June 2019. Despite continuing low levels of returns, the amount remaining in displacement has stayed relatively steady since February 2019. Of those in displacement, 32% are in camps with little likelihood of closing soon. Highly vulnerable out of camp IDPs remain scattered within the host community and in some difficult to reach areas. Returnees, unable to sustain themselves in their areas of origin show an increasing trend of returning to camps.

IDPs and returnees need for assistance remain high, and the most vulnerable people remain dependent on humanitarian assistance to survive.  Camp upgrading and maintenance, tent replacement, and basic NFI support are required.

For out of camp populations, critical shelter and NFI support are the highest priorities.

In areas with considerable damage from the conflict, people’s highest needs include shelter repairs and transitional shelter solutions.

The government is providing basic humanitarian assistance—including NFI assistance, kerosene deliveries and summer support—supplemented by humanitarian NFI assistance.  However, the compensation process to private home owners to repair damages from the conflict is not yet providing assistance at a high-level and is needed to achieve an end to reliance on humanitarian assistance. Stabilisation/development programs have begun and are providing significant gains for populations with damaged houses, however, they must be increased to a level which could encourage more significant durable returns.

Tent replacement in Bersive 1 camp, Dohuk, Shelter Cluster Iraq


  • 352,486 IDPs in and out of camp have been assisted with winter support during the 2019 – 2020 season.  95% of the assistance was done through the distribution of winter cash to cover people’s needs in the most effective and efficient way.
  • As part of HRP 2020, for the first two months of the year, eleven Shelter Cluster partners have reached 26% of the NFI target and 1% of the shelter target in prioritized districts. Slower implementation and delays are due to January events related to US/Iran tensions, administrative delays of access letters, further restriction of access to field locations country wide.
  • During February 2020, Shelter Cluster Iraq conducted four ActivityInfo trainings in Erbil, Baghdad and Dohuk reaching 74 partner staff members and continues to instruct bilaterally more partners on their reporting responsibilities and the new version of the platform.
  • In January 2020, ACTED finalized a cluster-facilitated project, reaching 22,495 IDPs in Shariya and Bersive 1 camp with new tent covers in order to improve protection from climatic conditions
