Accordingly, UNDP will support IoG to implement Fiscal Federalism, Decentralization and Resilience Building Project, a joint effort to help Iraq to become a stable, federal democracy with sustainable economic growth.
UNDP Acting Country Director, Mr. Sultan Hajiyev, underscored:
“Advocating for reforms and resilience building in Iraq, UNDP values this new partnership. Together with IoG, we will help to strengthen the country’s institutional capabilities and contribute to a more efficient, responsive, transparent and accountable public administration system at the national and subnational levels.”
IoG Executive Director, Mr. Steve Tierney (pictured), said:
“UNDP and IoG have partnered to further good governance in Iraq. Funded by Global Affairs Canada,*Fiscal Federalism, Decentralization and Resilience Building*Project*will support the elaboration of a federal system able to meet the needs of the country’s population in an effective and equitable manner.”
For 28 months through October 2018,*more than 300 senior political representatives, officials and academics from*the Federal Government and the Kurdistan Regional Government*of Iraq will be targeted with two types of activities: Institutional capacity building to design, develop, implement and manage the fiscal arrangements, processes and structures needed to build a sustainable federal parliamentary democracy; and to the same end, individual capacity building.
This is envisioned to improve resilience in the face of the current fiscal and economic crises.
