Iraq Scoping Mission Leader


Relief International has a history of implementing programming in Iraq since 2004; however, RI fully closed its program mission in mid-2021 and RI’s current presence in Iraq is now limited to i) operational hub in Erbil supporting our Syria mission, and ii) Microfinance Unit that operates across Iraq. For various strategic regions, RI would like to explore re-entry into Iraq and rebuild its program portfolio to support vulnerable communities inside Iraq. Special focus will be for programming in KRI, but programming in other areas of Iraq would also be desirable. Having been out of the Iraq programming space for almost two years, RI is seeking a consultant to lead a scoping mission in order to support RI in identifying potential entry point(s) to rebuild and in developing a proposed roadmap for so doing.  RI will prioritize consultant candidacy from individuals with recent experience working with INGO(s) in Iraq who comes with pre-existing knowledge of the context and relevant networking channels with other INGOs, UN agencies, donors and/or other key stakeholders.
