Government of Iraq

The adoption of a new constitution in 2005 was a fundamental milestone in Iraq's transformation from a unitary to a federal state. To fully implement the fiscal arrangements and the decentralisation of services necessary for the functioning of a highly-effective federation, a whole new set of individual and institutional competencies are required at all levels of government.

In this context, the Governments of Canada and Iraq agreed on two key governance areas where Canadian support would help the Republic institutionalise its new constitution. The support includes training, evaluation of systems and practices, and the development of competency frameworks.

The project will introduce hundreds of Iraqis including Kurds decision-makers and influencers to new thinking, relationships, and skills that will strengthen the country's institutional capacity.
