Reconstruction and Development Framework IRAQ RECONSTRUCTION and INVESTMENT

 

Foreword:

 

For the arduous task of reconstructing Iraq after the ISIS ignited destruction, Iraq’s Reconstruction and Development Framework is the government’s strategy that looks back to what has been lost and destroyed and presents a structured framework how to build it back better. Global experience has identified five key steps to successfully recover from a disaster: understand the needs, develop a comprehensive recovery plan, build inclusive and resilient institutions, finance the recovery, and implement recovery programs in a coordinated manner with high levels of accountability and transparency. This framework presents Iraq and its people with the framework for these five important steps. Complemented with the Iraq Vision 2030 and Iraq’s National Development Plan 2018-2022, I am humbled to say that this framework outlines a clear way forward. Drawing on many assessments conducted by the government, the framework aims to address the reconstruction and development challenges not only in the ISIS-liberated areas but also the governorates indirectly affected by the conflict. The framework is structured around five key pillars: 1) Governance; 2) Reconciliation and Peacebuilding; 3) Social and Human Development; 4) Infrastructure; and 5) Economic Development. For each pillar, the framework suggests concrete reform priorities sequenced over the short-, medium- and long-term. We are aware that a good strategy alone is not enough. For this reason, significant emphasis is placed on how the reconstruction process is undertaken. Good governance, monitoring and accountability will be critical to ensure that that reconstruction and development programs are effective and meet the demands of the Iraqi people. I am proud to say that the framework lays out a monitoring and accountability framework that promotes, amongst others, citizen engagement mechanisms, an open digital platform, an enhanced public procurement system, and a strategic communication plan. Given the unprecedented levels of damage and destruction, it is clear that the reconstruction and development of Iraq will come with significant financial costs. The framework will present our domestic and international partners with a new and innovative financing strategy. While the Government is strongly committed to use the federal budget as the main source of financing for reconstruction, it aspires to mobilize significant resources from the private sector and also seeks support from the international community to help address immediate recovery needs. To that end, the Government is ready to take the necessary steps to create an improved enabling environment for investment and business. The Government of Iraq is determined to see the great nation of Iraq rise again. However, no plan can be realized without the full commitment from our friends and partners abroad. I want to especially thank the World Bank Group for their support in complementing this document and in coordinating valuable inputs from multilateral and bilateral agencies. I am convinced that by continuing this pathway of mutual cooperation and dialogue, the road to peace and prosperity will be successfully travelled.

Dr. Maher Johan, MOP

 

 

 

V. RECOVERY AND RECONSTRUCTION STRATEGY Based on international experience for prioritization of needs, the following three Strategic Recovery Objectives are recommended as the foundation for the proposed recovery and reconstruction strategy that seeks to respond to the challenges in Iraq:

 

• Renew social contract. Iraq needs to capitalize on the historic opportunity to break with past conflict patterns and to use the reconstruction effort to forge a new social contract between the state and its citizens. The legacy of the previous regime coupled with the aftermath of the 2003 invasion has exposed deep-rooted divisions in Iraqi society, and a distrust in government that pre-dated 2003. Through this objective, the government aims to improve transparency and accountability of the reconstruction effort itself, as a means to rebuild trust and confidence. Furthermore, it will focus on advancing critical policy reforms required to strengthen local level implementation capacity, thus moving development closer to the affected populations. In doing this, the government commits to improve its effectiveness to respond to and mitigate risks of future conflict by promoting social cohesion.

 

• Promote economic and business recovery/development. It is important to create employment, develop productive capacities, and stimulate economic activities and private sector engagement in the reconstruction effort. An energy crisis, rampart insecurity, weak laws and regulations, and low levels of national and international investment have crippled the private sector. Combing priorities from the Economic Development and Human and Social Development Sectors in the GoI’s Vision 2030, it is critical to focus on critical priorities, including implementation of fiscal and financial reforms, improvements to the business environment, and job creation. A particular and urgent focus is on how the reconstruction effort itself can be used both to generate opportunities for the private sector and for employment purposes.

 

• Rehabilitate major infrastructure and restore service delivery. The conflict in Iraq has caused devastation to the infrastructure in the country which has affected critical services such as energy production, transport and communication, water and irrigation, as well as destroying private homes rendering many homeless. A critical outcome of the reconstruction framework is to restore and rehabilitate key public and private infrastructure that will enable service delivery, provide housing for people, and facilitate economic development. Damage and Needs Assessment of Affected Governorates 132 The next steps towards a more comprehensive recovery and reconstruction strategy include the rapid scaling-up of the Damage and Needs Assessment to cover the remaining 11 governorates which have felt the shockwaves of the conflict. The results of the Iraq DNA and the Strategic Recovery Objectives will feed into the government’s Reconstruction and Development Framework (RDF). The reconstruction framework will further develop and adopt a programmatic recovery approach to ensure that the recovery and reconstruction needs identified in the DNA are well-coordinated, synchronized, and systematically prioritized to reduce potential gaps and overlaps. The framework ought to progressively implement coherent institutional, financing, prioritization, policy development, and program management structures. A GoI-led and locally implemented recovery effort will help garner the most systematic and harmonized support from national and international partners possible. Several cross-cutting issues are also recognized as critical to successful reconstruction. Specific attention through the reconstruction framework will be placed on gender equality and on the role of women and youth, as well as to ensure that activities address both those displaced and host communities to avoid localized conflicts over resources and access to services. Furthermore, attention will be given to the need to rapidly strengthen local level capacity to deliver, including both local government institutions and non-state organizations

Furthermore, it will focus on advancing critical policy reforms required to strengthen local level implementation capacity, thus moving development closer to the affected populations. In doing this, the government commits to improve its effectiveness to respond to and mitigate risks of future conflict by promoting social cohesion.

 

• Promote economic and business recovery/development. It is important to create employment, develop productive capacities, and stimulate economic activities and private sector engagement in the reconstruction effort. An energy crisis, rampart insecurity, weak laws and regulations, and low levels of national and international investment have crippled the private sector. Combing priorities from the Economic Development and Human and Social Development Sectors in the GoI’s Vision 2030, it is critical to focus on critical priorities, including implementation of fiscal and financial reforms, improvements to the business environment, and job creation. A particular and urgent focus is on how the reconstruction effort itself can be used both to generate opportunities for the private sector and for employment purposes.

 

• Rehabilitate major infrastructure and restore service delivery. The conflict in Iraq has caused devastation to the infrastructure in the country which has affected critical services such as energy production, transport and communication, water and irrigation, as well as destroying private homes rendering many homeless. A critical outcome of the reconstruction framework is to restore and rehabilitate key public and private infrastructure that will enable service delivery, provide housing for people, and facilitate economic development. Damage and Needs Assessment of Affected Governorates 132 The next steps towards a more comprehensive recovery and reconstruction strategy include the rapid scaling-up of the Damage and Needs Assessment to cover the remaining 11 governorates which have felt the shockwaves of the conflict. The results of the Iraq DNA and the Strategic Recovery Objectives will feed into the government’s Reconstruction and Development Framework (RDF). The reconstruction framework will further develop and adopt a programmatic recovery approach to ensure that the recovery and reconstruction needs identified in the DNA are well-coordinated, synchronized, and systematically prioritized to reduce potential gaps and overlaps. The framework ought to progressively implement coherent institutional, financing, prioritization, policy development, and program management structures.

Several cross-cutting issues are also recognized as critical to successful reconstruction. Specific attention through the reconstruction framework will be placed on gender equality and on the role of women and youth, as well as to ensure that activities address both those displaced and host communities to avoid localized conflicts over resources and access to services. Furthermore, attention will be given to the need to rapidly strengthen local level capacity to deliver, including both local government institutions and non-state organizations

Reconstruction and Development Framework IRAQ RECONSTRUCTION and INVESTMENT

 

Foreword For the arduous task of reconstructing Iraq after the ISIS ignited destruction, Iraq’s Reconstruction and Development Framework is the government’s strategy that looks back to what has been lost and destroyed and presents a structured framework how to build it back better. Global experience has identified five key steps to successfully recover from a disaster: understand the needs, develop a comprehensive recovery plan, build inclusive and resilient institutions, finance the recovery, and implement recovery programs in a coordinated manner with high levels of accountability and transparency. This framework presents Iraq and its people with the framework for these five important steps. Complemented with the Iraq Vision 2030 and Iraq’s National Development Plan 2018-2022, I am humbled to say that this framework outlines a clear way forward. Drawing on many assessments conducted by the government, the framework aims to address the reconstruction and development challenges not only in the ISIS-liberated areas but also the governorates indirectly affected by the conflict. The framework is structured around five key pillars: 1) Governance; 2) Reconciliation and Peacebuilding; 3) Social and Human Development; 4) Infrastructure; and 5) Economic Development. For each pillar, the framework suggests concrete reform priorities sequenced over the short-, medium- and long-term. We are aware that a good strategy alone is not enough. For this reason, significant emphasis is placed on how the reconstruction process is undertaken. Good governance, monitoring and accountability will be critical to ensure that that reconstruction and development programs are effective and meet the demands of the Iraqi people. I am proud to say that the framework lays out a monitoring and accountability framework that promotes, amongst others, citizen engagement mechanisms, an open digital platform, an enhanced public procurement system, and a strategic communication plan. Given the unprecedented levels of damage and destruction, it is clear that the reconstruction and development of Iraq will come with significant financial costs. The framework will present our domestic and international partners with a new and innovative financing strategy. While the Government is strongly committed to use the federal budget as the main source of financing for reconstruction, it aspires to mobilize significant resources from the private sector and also seeks support system" rel="">support from the international community to help address immediate recovery needs. To that end, the Government is ready to take the necessary steps to create an improved enabling environment for investment and business. The Government of Iraq is determined to see the great nation of Iraq rise again. However, no plan can be realized without the full commitment from our friends and partners abroad. I want to especially thank the World Bank Group for their support system" rel="">support in complementing this document and in coordinating valuable inputs from multilateral and bilateral agencies. I am convinced that by continuing this pathway of mutual cooperation and dialogue, the road to peace and prosperity will be successfully travelled.

Dr. Maher Johan, MOP

 

 

 

V. RECOVERY AND RECONSTRUCTION STRATEGY Based on international experience for prioritization of needs, the following three Strategic Recovery Objectives are recommended as the foundation for the proposed recovery and reconstruction strategy that seeks to respond to the challenges in Iraq:

 

• Renew social contract. Iraq needs to capitalize on the historic opportunity to break with past conflict patterns and to use the reconstruction effort to forge a new social contract between the state and its citizens. The legacy of the previous regime coupled with the aftermath of the 2003 invasion has exposed deep-rooted divisions in Iraqi society, and a distrust in government that pre-dated 2003. Through this objective, the government aims to improve transparency and accountability of the reconstruction effort itself, as a means to rebuild trust and confidence. Furthermore, it will focus on advancing critical policy reforms required to strengthen local level implementation capacity, thus moving development closer to the affected populations. In doing this, the government commits to improve its effectiveness to respond to and mitigate risks of future conflict by promoting social cohesion.

 

• Promote economic and business recovery/development. It is important to create employment, develop productive capacities, and stimulate economic activities and private sector engagement in the reconstruction effort. An energy crisis, rampart insecurity, weak laws and regulations, and low levels of national and international investment have crippled the private sector. Combing priorities from the Economic Development and Human and Social Development Sectors in the GoI’s Vision 2030, it is critical to focus on critical priorities, including implementation of fiscal and financial reforms, improvements to the business environment, and job creation. A particular and urgent focus is on how the reconstruction effort itself can be used both to generate opportunities for the private sector and for employment purposes.

A critical outcome of the reconstruction framework is to restore and rehabilitate key public and private infrastructure that will enable service delivery, provide housing for people, and facilitate economic development.

This would not be surprising they would be targetting this in this 5-year plan as these are the very subjects found within the 2016 SBA agreement the IMF has identified Iraq has great need to work on to meet the milestones. One of those benchmarks is to increase the non-oil producing sectors of Iraq. The SBA is due for its third review in August and results out by November/December (with a final report due out in May 2019). Based off of how many of the milestones get waived or are missed will determine the future economic viability of the dinar. After the completion of the three-year SBA will things begin to exponentially improve for all of those concerned. 

 

The official spokesman of the Ministry of Planning Abdul-Zahra al-Hindawi, said that "the five-year plan, which the ministry seeks to implement in cooperation with most government agencies, aims to promote the sectors of health, tourism and electricity specifically
