Fallujah needs $2bn for Reconstruction

Fallujah city in Anbar province needs $2 billion for reconstruction, the city’s mayor said on August 10.

Eissa al-Sayer told Aljournal News website that securing the amount at present would be difficult given the government’s focus on military operations against IS, adding that world donors should focus donations on service projects rather than the infrastructure.

Sayer stated that the sanitation sector needs $50 million, the water services $10 million and the municipality needs $15 million just to begin clearance and reconstruction.

In May, the Iraqi government approved a ten-year scheme for the rehabilitation of areas liberated from IS worth USD100 billion, saying it would secure the finances depending on international loans and grants.
