The State of Hunger in Iraq
Iraq’s conflict with the Islamic State (IS), which took place from 2014 to 2017, dramatically increased humanitarian needs and caused several waves of displacement. The consequences of this conflict continue to be felt today.
Millions of refugees have returned to their home country, despite the fact that resources and opportunities for livelihoods remain limited and infrastructure has yet to be rebuilt. Throughout Iraq, continued conflicts, displacement, and drought exacerbate mental health, safety, water, hygiene, and sanitation needs.
