KUWAIT CITY, Feb 13 (Bernama) -- The Iraqis may have won the battle against Daesh militants, but another fight has begun -- the painstaking struggle to reconstruct the country.
Iraq's United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN Habitat) Representative, Erfan Ali said the damages done by ISIS were extensive especially in the area of housing compared to other sections such as healthcare, oil and gas, power and commerce.
"Based on our involvement with the government housing sector is the most damaged among other sectors, with 19.8 percent of the total damage in the housing sector.
"To help assist the reconstruction of Iraq, UN Habitat will be working closely with Iraq's Ministry of Planning to build a digital data platform to monitor and plan the restructuring campaign in all sectors," he said to Bernama at the end of the second day of the Kuwait International Conference on the Reconstruction of Iraq (KICRI) here Monday.
Erfan said a digital data platform has been also launched which will be an efficient tool to confirm the transparency and accountability of the process of the reconstruction of Iraq.....
