UNHCR estimates that there still around 1,500,000 IDPs in Iraq following the post 2006 displacement, of which more than 500,000 are in squatter settlements. In partnership with the Ministry of Migration and Displacement (MODM) under the project “Improving Access to Shelter for IDPs” UN-HABITAT is tasked to prepare a strategy for MODM to support the Ministry in Reaching Durable Shelter Solutions for IDPs. “A durable solution is achieved when IDPs no longer have specific assistance and protection needs that are linked to their displacement and such persons can enjoy their human rights without discrimination resulting from their displacement.” A durable solution can be achieved through: ? Sustainable reintegration at the place of origin (return) ? Sustainable local integration in areas where internally displaced persons take refuge (local integration) ? Sustainable integration in another part of the country (settlement elsewhere in the country) Durable solutions require IDPs to have an adequate standard of living; safety and security; access to livelihoods; restoration of housing, land and property; access to documentation; family reunification; participation in public affairs; and access to effective remedies and justice. The Government of Iraq’s long term strategy to address the needs of displaced persons is documented in the National Policy on Displacement, drafted by the Ministry of Displacement and Migration with input from UNHCR and announced on 23/05/2008. Within this wider framework, the Strategy will focus on how to support IDPs in sustainably achieving the right to adequate housing and the recognition of property rights. The Strategy Document will provide a general overview of the IDP situation, with reference to data from MoDM and other sources, highlighting key bottlenecks in achieving the right to adequate housing and the recognition of property rights, and will review current initiatives and provide realistic strategies on: ? Access to Land for Housing; ? Settlement of Property Disputes; ? Communities affected by displacement; ? Housing Options; and, ? Housing Finance. A rough outline of the document has been prepared by UN-HABITAT in discussion with MoDM, which will be finalized by the International Consultant responsible for preparing the strategy. The preparation of the Strategy document, by 15th April 2011, through extensive collaboration with MoDM and related stakeholders (MoCH, MMPW, MoP, Civil Society) will require holding workshops with stakeholders and working groups from related ministries to review related data (collected from the field) and studies in order to provide initial recommendations on findings of the studies Duties of the consultant: 1.
