This issue of Humanitarian Exchange focuses on the crisis in Iraq.
Since the seizure of Iraqi territory by Islamic State in January 2014, over 3.2 million people have been displaced. More than 8 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, but a lack of funding and insecurity mean that few international humanitarian organisations are working outside of Kurdistan.
Articles cover topics including: human trafficking, mobile approachs to monitor protection needs, security strategies, livelihood programmes, beneficiary feedback and scaling up cash assistance.
