Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]


Question of: Humanitarian Assistance for Iraq
Delegation/submitter: United States of America
Sponsored by:
Submitted to: The Security Council


Acknowledging that the humanitarian situation today in Iraq is tenuous,
Alarmed that more than 750,000 refugees have fled Iraq, causing problems for the neighbouring countries,
Realising that the neighbouring countries of Iraq have reached full capacity of Iraqi refugees,
Concerned that more that 800,000 people have been displaced from their homes and country,
Aware of many more people being internally displaced within Iraq, living in extremely poor standards of living,
Recognising that military action in Iraq would have adverse humanitarian consequences,
Emphasising that many of the consequences could result from Saddam’s action,
Convinced that the resolution to the humanitarian crisis requires contribution and full dedication from all members of the Security Council and relevant NGOs,

1. Suggests the imposition of further military campaigns and information campaigns within Iraq with the support of the member states,
a) Aim to reduce and minimise damage to infrastructure, cultural sites, and speed up re-construction of infrastructure where services are available for Iraqi civilians,
b) Discourage population displacement through information campaigns that will assure populations are not at risk and safe at homes,
c) As infrastructure improves and civilians notified, promptly re-establish important services like healthcare rapidly, in coordination with World Health Organisation (WHO), and with improved information and infrastructure, access to aid should also be improved.

2. Encourages members of the Security Council to provide expertise, funding and support to UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UN MVIC), and other relevant NGOs in relief and reconstruction, by
a) Creating and establishing specific organisations that assists specifically with foreign disasters, aid and refugee migration if not already done so, (The U.S. has USAID (United States Agency for International Development), with a specific Office of US Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) and the State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration.)
b) Requesting all relevant organisations of each member state to fully facilitating and funding their efforts towards UN agencies and its activities
c) Confirming that military has an important role in securing access and safety, allowing relief teams and agencies to fulfil their humanitarian mandates.

3. Considers the important key to success in resolving humanitarian crisis is effective civil-military coordination, suggests:
a) Member states of the Security Council to train and prepare a Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART), similar to the US DART that has been established, made up of humanitarian emergency professionals, that enters the liberated areas of Iraq in coordination with military forces to assess humanitarian needs, coordinate relief actions, offering immediate coordination with international organisations and NGOs.
b) Representatives of DART should also be sent to Iraq’s neighbouring countries such as Kuwait, Jordan, Qatar, with cooperation of the governments in the region, assisting refugees that fled Iraq.

4. Urges member states to further facilitate international organisations and NGOs, by:
a) Encouraging and appreciating donations and support from relief agencies as well as private organisations and individuals,
b) Increase funding from relevant government agencies which works towards humanitarian assistance for Iraq
c) Increase aid provision and relief supplies where possible, requesting producers’ support, and establish agreements with pharmaceutical companies to provide free or cheap WHO essential medication for relief.

5. Affirms that provision of food and healthcare is essential to resolve humanitarian crisis, requests member states, World Food Programme (WFP) and WHO to:
a) Support the resumption of the ration distributing system, where Iraqis get rations from the oil-for-food distributing system, noting that 60% rely on rations as their only source food,
b) Set up temporary mobile stations that provide basic healthcare, alongside with the WHO, providing basic relief supplies and medication as well as the distribution of rations where the military can enable access and ensure safety, and it is the best and quickest way for short-term relief.

6. Further calls on member states and relevant NGOs to regularly report to the UN MVIC of the progress in humanitarian assistance for Iraq, and:
a) Devise necessary meeting of the Security Council in case of other rising situations and problems,
b) Renew its appeal that the UN and member states make these necessary changes and actions to ensure improvement in the humanitarian crisis of Iraq.
