Iraq Zero Hunger Strategic Review

Author: Iraq Country Office
With support from WFP, the Government of Iraq implemented this Zero Hunger Strategic Review (ZHSR), under the lead of Dr. Mehdi al-Alak, Secretary General of the Iraq Council of Ministers. The process was a consultative and country-led exercise that provided a comprehensive analysis of the challenges Iraq faces in achieving SDG 2; identified gaps in policies and in-country institutional capacities needed to achieve the SDG 2 targets; and examined the adequacy of national and international resources for addressing food and nutrition security. The review identifies critical constraints and presents relevant recommendations and cost estimates for achieving food and nutrition security by 2030. This, in turn, will inform the WFP Country Strategic Plan and the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2020-2024.
