Rising to the humanitarian challenge in Iraq

While horrific violence dominates the lives of millions of ordinary people inside Iraq, another kind of crisis, also due to the impact of war, has been slowly unfolding. Up to eight million people are now in need of emergency assistance.

This figure includes:

  • four million people who are 'food-insecure and in dire need of different types of humanitarian assistance'
  • more than two million displaced people inside Iraq
  • over two million Iraqis in neighbouring countries, mainly Syria and Jordan, making this the fastest-growing refugee crisis in the world.
