Mosul, Iraq: Alliance2015 Prepares for “Single Largest and Most Complex Humanitarian Response of 2016”

Three Alliance2015 members are currently active in Iraq, i.e. Welthungerhilfe acting as Alliance2015 Country Lead Agency, ACTED and People in Need. Together, they have developed a preparedness and response strategy to provide life-saving humanitarian assistance to those displaced from Mosul.

Our focus now is on the preparation to meet the most vital emergency needs. The Alliance2015 partners will prioritise supporting newly displaced families from Mosul and surrounding areas who will be hosted in camps, emergency camps or informal settlements which may include collective centres organised inside schools, or abandoned/unfinished buildings.

Through collaboration and close coordination the Alliance2015 partners will share resources, tools, local expertise and structural support; minimising our expenses and maximising our impact. Our goal as an alliance is to have the widest possible humanitarian reach and to ensure that the response is coordinated, relevant and harmonised.
