Denmark supports stabilization in Iraq with $21.4 m
Denmark has contributed an additional  $ 21.4 million (DKK 135 million) to UNDP’s Funding Facility for Stabilization (FFS), which finances fast-track initiatives to stabilize areas liberated from ISIS, UNDP in Iraq reported on Tuesday.

“It is truly impressive to see the progress that is being made in newly liberated areas. More than half of all of the nearly six million people who fled their homes during the conflict have returned. Accelerating stabilization so the 2.6 million people who are still displaced can go home and rebuild their lives is one of Iraq’s highest priorities.”, UNDP Resident Representative for Iraq, Ms. Lise Grande, said.

“Denmark congratulates the Iraqi people and the Iraqi Security Forces on the continued success in liberating Iraq from ISIL, with support from the International Coalition. Rehabilitation of critical infrastructure and reestablishing public services remain critical to enable the return of people displaced by the conflict", The Danish Ambassador to Iraq, H.E. Gert Meinecke, said.

UNDP established the Funding Facility for Stabilization in June 2015 at Iraqi government request to facilitate the return of displaced civilians.
