On the 18th of October the United Nations delivered a joint press release on partners delivering assistance for displaced families from Mosul. The press release states that NGOs and local responders are critical to the response on the ground. The United Nations works closely with humanitarian partners and implements many of their programmes and distributions via national and international NGOs. The majority of these NGO partners are active members of the NGO Coordination Committee of Iraq for Iraq (NCCI).
As of 22 October, the International Organization for Migration recorded 5,070 people displaced by military operations close to Mosul using its emergency tracking matrix (ET). People continue to move south away from the conflict areas towards Qayyarah, and new displacement channels have been recorded towards Debaga camp, south-east of Mosul, and towards Zelikan camp in the east. The majority of displaced people recorded in the ET are sheltering in host communities close to Qayyarah. The situation is fluid, and the numbers of displaced people are fluctuating as the front lines move. On 21 October, the ET recorded 550 families (3,300 people) returning to the town of Al Houd, 50 km south of Mosul, following the cessation of fighting in the…

NCCI Launches its New Job Portal

Tuesday, 16 August 2016
On 14 August 2016 NCCI launched its new job portal, which replaces the old vacancies section on its website. Here NCCI’s member NGOs can publish vacancies for staff throughout the country. The new job portal is designed to make it easier for job seekers to find a suitable job at one of NCCI’s member NGOs. The job portal contains a customizable search option, which allows job seekers to sort vacancies by location, job sector, closing date and NGO. At the same time the new system is more user-friendly for NCCI’s members, as it allows users to update the job description of their job postings or alter the closing date as needed.
In August 2016 new NGO representatives for the Humanitarian Country Team (HCT) will be elected. As the prime NGO coordination body in Iraq, NCCI is tasked with organizing the elections on behalf of the NGO community in Iraq. The HCT is the strategic decision making body overseeing the humanitarian response in Iraq. Representatives from UN agencies, the ICRC, the donor community and the NGOs operating in Iraq take part in the HCT, which is chaired by the Humanitarian Coordinator (HC). The NGO representatives on the HCT do not only represent themselves at this forum, but are also tasked with voicing concerns of the wider NGO community in country. It is therefore important for all NGOs in Iraq that strong candidates…
