Members will play a central role in shaping the future strategic direction of NCCI, which continues to adapt its structure and services to respond to the shifting needs of the NGO community. The strategic review will enable NCCI to develop a detailed observation of how NCCI is currently positioned within its mandate as the country-wide forum in Iraq for NGO coordination, joint advocacy and information sharing.

Since the end of last year, more than 1 million people have been displaced inside Iraq due to violence in Anbar, Ninewa and the surrounding governorates.

As a result of the recent conflict and deterioration of the situation in Iraq, over 1 million civilians have been displaced. Since January 2014, 480,000 people have fled the ongoing fighting in the Anbar governorate.
