About Mercy Corps:

Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions into action — helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within. Now, and for the future.

Mercy Corps Iraq current goal is to work with new and existing civil society, public and private sector partners to meet immediate and long-term needs by strengthening communities’ ability to rebuild amidst increasing Crisis.

Community Leaders OVERVIEW:

The project’s overall goal is to reduce and prevent violence through conflict monitoring, management and prevention mechanisms in Ninewa.
Mercy Corps’ community-driven approach to conflict monitoring, management and prevention will strengthen the ability of community leaders and local authorities at sub-district, district and province levels to manage and prevent conflict, promote reconciliation and trust between communities, and amplify the role of women and youth in decision-making.


Mercy Corps will continue to monitor and track the CL’s progress on dispute resolution activities using the disputes and cases database, during the cost-extension period. To bolster local dispute resolution capacities and to prevent escalation, Mercy Corps will generate 20 case studies on solved disputes registered in the disputes and cases database, that will be shared at all levels – institutional, civil society, and communities. These case studies, also a new activity under the cost extension, will outline the specific steps in dispute resolution that have proven successful in the prevention, mitigation and response to a specific type of conflict. Mercy Corps will hire a local consultant to create disputes case file, document disputes and develop these case studies. Additionally, it will provide an objective and verifiable source of information for community and government efforts to prevent and manage conflict. Mercy Corps will also use these case studies as reference during presentations, informal and formal meetings, and stakeholders’ consultation meetings to increase interests from the decision-makers and peace-building actors to invest in using the IBN approach on dispute resolution.
