At the invitation of the Government of Iraq, the Global Coalition is supporting stabilisation and humanitarian efforts across Iraq to help the Iraqi people rebuild their lives after being liberated from Daesh. Along with the Government of Iraq, the Coalition recognises that the gains of even the most successful military operation will only be preserved if they are followed by successful stabilisation efforts, which address the underlying causes of the rise of Daesh.
The Coalition is helping Iraq’s local government to make its cities safe and to work for local populations. This includes helping to clear neighbourhoods of mines and remnants of war, restore basic municipal services like electricity, water, education and health, along with setting conditions for local economies to recover and for Iraqis displaced by the conflict to voluntarily return home. By supporting Iraqi-led political and security sector reforms, the Coalition is working to consolidate gains to date and prevent a re-emergence of Daesh.
