2017 Iraq Humanitarian Needs Overview

HUMANITARIAN NEEDS & KEY FIGURES

Three years of continuous conflict and economic stagnation have impacted nearly every aspect of Iraqi society. More people are vulnerable and in need of assistance now than at any time during the previous years. During 2017, humanitarians estimate that as many as 11  million Iraqis will require some form of humanitarian assistance. This figure represents the aggregate, rather than absolute number of people who will require some form of assistance. In some cases, a single person is counted several times in determining the overall level of need. This reflects the complex reality of Iraq and the changing vulnerabilities many Iraqis are expected to experience during the year.
