NCCI has published its annual report for 2015. The annual report contains an overview of NCCI’s structure, mission and activities during the past year.
2015 was an eventful year, both for NCCI and for Iraq as a whole. During 2015 the humanitarian crisis that erupted in Iraq in 2014 continued unabated, leaving a growing number of people in the country in need of humanitarian support. In the backdrop of this expanding and enduring humanitarian crisis, local and international NGOs stepped up their operations in Iraq, while the United Nations and the cluster coordination system rolled out in force in the country.
Under these changing circumstances NCCI continued to fulfill its mission as a member-led NGO platform. Throughout 2015 NCCI coordinated NGO action, facilitated contact between NGOs and other relevant actors within and outside Iraq while at the same time offering a platform for advocacy and supporting its member organizations through information sharing, administrative services and advice. NCCI maintained its role as a representative of the NGO community in Iraq at the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) and international fora and expanded its cooperation with the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the cluster system in general and various levels of the local government. Responding to shifting needs and a developing context, NCCI also closed its Amman office and strengthened its presence in Erbil.
