The humanitarian crisis in Iraq is one of the largest and has seen the fastest rate of displacement since it began in 2014. Vulnerable populations in Iraq include both the new and long-term displaced, and returnees, as well as communities hosting the displaced. For those affected by the conflict, all aspects of life have been disrupted including access to health care, education, income opportunities and safety and security. The 2019 Humanitarian Response Plan anticipates that during 2019 as many as 6.7 million people will require some form of humanitarian assistance including 1.8 million internally displaced persons (IDPs), 11 million living in conflict-affected communities, and 4.7 million returnees.
The Emergency Livelihoods Cluster (ELC) strategy is to help conflict-affected people cope with the impact of the crisis, whilst providing asset replacement with business incubation activities to deliver long-term support to newly established businesses or businesses that have lost assets. Following this strategy, the most immediate objective of livelihoods partners in responding to the needs is to help replace lost assets, especially income-generating assets. The cluster partners target people in need, with a special focus on returnees depending on their specific situation and the local context.
To implement these activities and to avoid duplication, information management is a core component to address the needs of people. The Information Management Officer will create a system whereby relevant data (spatial/GIS, non-spatial tabular, statistical, etc.) can be brought into a structure that supports the efficient management of information on the livelihood needs and response, for informed decision making.
The incumbent will report to the Emergency Livelihood Cluster Coordinator.

This is a critical time for the world. At UNDP, we see this period as a huge opportunity to advance the global sustainable development agenda. In September 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

We support countries' efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, or Global Goals, which will guide global development priorities through 2030.
