Iraq—Support Policy Dialog and Technical Assistance

Client: European Union

Duration: 2022-2024

Region: Middle East and North Africa

Country: Iraq

Solutions: Governance

Within the parameters of the European Union (EU) Strategy for Iraq and the EU-Iraq Partnership and Cooperation Arrangement (PCA), the key strategic interests of the EU in Iraq are to preserve security and stability, diversify the economy and create jobs, and rebuild the social contract between citizens and institutions. Ensuring sustained improvements in democratic processes and governance, enhancing the business and investment-enabling environment, fostering fair and sustainable employment opportunities, and building a solid human capital are all areas of strategic relevance in achieving these goals.

The Support Policy Dialog and Technical Assistance in Iraq project supports the EU’s objective to improve the overall stability of Iraq by addressing the root causes of the continued political and institutional fragility. This project strengthens public institutions and develops capacities for policymaking, supports the government’s revision of coherent development policy frameworks, and contributes to the general socio-economic development of the country.
