Iraq National Victim Assistance Dialogue



In the context of the European Union Council Decision 2017/1428, the European Union with the technical support of the Convention's Implementation Support Unit is supporting Iraq in carrying out a national victim assistance stakeholder dialogue in Baghdad from 25-27 September.

The Republic of Iraq, one of 29 States Parties to the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention having reported responsibility for significant numbers of landmine survivors, will hold a three-day National Stakeholder Dialogue seeking to kick-start the development of a national action plan to cohesively address not only mine survivors’ needs but those of all persons with disabilities in Iraq.

The workshop will count with the participation of relevant Iraqi authorities, national and international partners including donors and representatives of mine-affected communities.
