According to a report, Iraq has signed an agreement with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) to upgrade the water network for Sulaimaniyah City.
UNDP resident representative and UN resident and humanitarian coordinator for Iraq, Lise Grande said, “The Governorate and people of Sulaimaniyah have generously welcomed and supported displaced and refugee families.”
“The city’s infrastructure is under enormous pressure because so many people need services. We’re very pleased that we can support the Governorate by helping to repair a key component of the water system.”
UNDP’s Iraq Crisis Response and Resilience Program (ICRRP) and the Governorate of Sulaimaniyah will restore the Dokan-Sulaimaniyah water network – the primary water pipeline for over 1.1 million residents, refugees and displaced people in Sulaimaniyah City.
The Governor of Sulaimaniyah, Dr. Aso Faridoon Amin said, “The strain of the humanitarian crisis upon the infrastructure and services of the Governorate renders our partnership with UNDP as vital.”
