Iraq - Promoting the Inclusion of Conflict-Affected Iraqi Youth Project : additional financing : Iraq - Promoting the Inclusion of Conflict-Affected Iraqi Youth Project (English)

The development objective of Promoting the Inclusion of Conflict-Affected Iraqi Youth Project for Iraq is to promote the social and economic inclusion of at least 3,000 conflict-affected Iraqi youth (ages 15-29) through engagement in entrepreneurship and youth-led community development activities. To achieve its objective, this project will pilot locally based approaches that address youth’s social and economic vulnerabilities through the provision of: (i) soft skills training and psychosocial support;(ii) trainings and grants for youth-led community development activities; and (iii) business development training, grants for youth business start-up/expansion, and post-grant mentorship. The project is consistent with the Performance and Learning Review (PLR) for the period 2013-2016, which updated the Country Partnership Strategy to reflect changed country circumstances and with a view to countering violence, extremism, and instability. It is also in line with Iraq's 2013-2017 National Development Plan (NDP). This project will complement Bank-financed operations by enhancing the peacebuilding contributions of the Emergency Operation for Development Project (EODP). The EODP supports the reconstruction and rehabilitation of infrastructure and government services at local level in areas recently recovered from Islamic State of Iraq and Syria's (ISIS) control.
