Visit of Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC, to Iraq

Kristalina Georgieva, Member of the EC in charge of International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response, went to Baghdad to meet with Hoshyar Zebari, Iraqi Minister for Foreign Affairs, and Dindar Nadjman, Iraqi Minister for Displaced and Migration.
In this context, she announced that the EC increased its humanitarian assistance to Iraq by €3 million in response to an increase in the numbers of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) fleeing a wave of violence in Al Anbar province. This additional funding will bring the total 2014 humanitarian funding for Iraq to €7 million.
Kristalina Georgieva also went to Erbil to meet with Nechirvan Barzani, Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), and Falah Mustafa Bakir, Minister, Head of the Department of Foreign Relations of the KRG.
Since the outset of the conflict, the EC has provided €21 million to assist more than 225 000 Syrians, mainly of Kurdish origin, who have fled the violence inside Syria and crossed to the Kurdish region of Iraq. About 30% are hosted in camps, of which Domiz is by far the largest. The remaining 70% are living in urban areas across the three Kurdish Governorates, often under very difficult circumstances. The funding provided through the Commission's Humanitarian and Civil Protection department (ECHO) has provided assistance including registration, protection, shelter, water and sanitation, food and other items for the most vulnerable. Aid channelled through its humanitarian partners has supported Domiz Camp in Dohuk governorate and also urban refugees.
In addition, under the Children of Peace initiative launched with the prize money of the Nobel Peace Prize received by the European Union in 2012, ECHO also launched two specific projects to provide basic education to refugee children, one in 2013 and another in 2014.
