Description of Project

The pre-study of local/regional democratic governance and infrastructure support in Iraq served as part of the input for the Swedish cooperation strategy process for Iraq. The pre-study included interviews with Iraqi government officials, NGOs and media in all 18 provinces of Iraq. Further details and recommendations for the support were developed in a feasibility study, where feasible approaches and methods to support local democratic governance in three geographical areas – in the north, central and south – were developed.
