UNDP Developing Disaster Risk Management Capacities in Iraq
Since its construction in early eighties, the Mosul Dam has been the largest water infrastructure in Iraq which was designed to protect downstream population from seasonal flooding, store water, generate electricity, and supply water to address irrigation needs. The risks of Mosul dam failure posed significant threats to the vulnerable population in the downstream. In response to the urgent need for people’ safety and awareness on the risks of Mosul Dam (MD), UNDP has been supporting the Government of Iraq for emergency preparedness and risks awareness of the vulnerable population along the Tigris Flood path. With technical support from UNDP, the Government of Iraq has mobilized concrete actions in setting up an Emergency Alert and Communication System to safeguard the vulnerable population with alert/warning notification and clear and easily understandable massaging across the key Government institutions and to the affected population.
There is an expressed need by the Government of Iraq for a comprehensive national as well as Governorate level preparedness and response plan, and UNDP has been requested to provide expert technical support for the proposed national response plan for Mosul dam under the overall guidance of the PM-NOC, Government of Iraq. In doing so, UNDP has engaged key national experts and officials from the Civil Defense and the relevant ministries and institutions as well as high-risk Governorates to review the existing plans and to agree on a unified response plan with clear division of shared responsibilities that can potentially deliver the emergency services in a coordinated way. Major Government partners such as the specialized UN agencies, international NGOs and Donors has been consulted, engaged and involved in the planning process and remained vital contributor to the entire preparedness and response activities.
To support effective implementation, UNDP urgently requires to hire a short-term national expert in Baghdad who will coordinate and facilitate with the project partners and accomplish time-bound and targeted results during Oct-Dec 2018.
