Doodlebug:  Government of Iraq and UNDP initiate 202 projects to accelerate the stabilization of Mosul

April 19, 2017
Baghdad—Building on dozens of projects already underway, the Government of Iraq today authorized UNDP’s Funding Facility for Stabilization (FFS) to initiate 202 more projects to accelerate the immediate stabilization of Mosul and greater Ninewa Governorate.

The projects will repair damaged water, sewage and electrical systems, rehabilitate education and health facilities, and boost the local economy by employing youth on work brigades to remove rubble, open transport routes and revitalize the city.

At a signing ceremony in Baghdad, Dr. Mahdi Muhsin Al-Alaq, Acting Secretary General of the Council of Ministers, emphasized that providing these basic services would pave the way for the return of displaced people to liberated areas.  

Ms. Lise Grande, UNDP Resident Representative for Iraq, said: “This authorization comes at just the right moment. A lot of work is already underway, but so much more needs to be done. We’re ready, and now we have the green light to go.”

The 202 projects were developed by the key provincial and line directorates, in cooperation with UNDP’s FFS, and are designed to support stabilization efforts in Mosul city and greater Ninewa Governorate. 
Since the start of military operations to retake Mosul six months ago, nearly half a million people have been displaced from their homes. More than two-and-a-half years of ISIL control and conflict has crippled the city’s infrastructure. Homes have been destroyed, schools and health centres damaged, and crucial public infrastructure is in ruins.

Once the operation to free western Mosul from ISIL is over, the task of reconstructing a safe, functioning metropolis will be one of the biggest stabilization initiatives since World War II.

Established in June 2015, FFS is working in newly liberated areas in Anbar, Salah al-Din, Ninewah and Diyala governorates. More than 500 projects are completed or being implemented across 22 locations. Since the start of the crisis, over 1.6 million people have returned to their homes.


Don961:  Abadi to declare Mosul fully liberated from ISIS by April 30th

April 19 2017 06:39 PM

Iraqi premier Haider Abadi intends to declare Mosul utterly liberated by April 30th, a source at Abadi's office told The Baghdad Post Wednesday. 

The source revealed that only six districts remain under ISIS grip, adding the Old Mosul district would be declared liberated within two days.

The preliminary indicators say all neighborhoods of the city that fell to ISIS in 2014 would be liberated with a week from now. 

After liberating the city, all the districts will be combed to safely move food supplies to residents and transfer those injured to hospitals, the source said. 

Abadi visited Mosul today to inspect the ongoing 'We Are Coming, Nineveh' military operation that started on February 19 to remove ISIS from the right bank of the city. The offensive is backed by the US-led international coalition's airstrikes.

Don961:  Wells Fargo Scandal Weighs Heavily on Other Big Banks

Thursday, April 20, 2017

It’s the topic the banking industry can’t avoid, even when people prefer not to mention it by name: Wells Fargo.

Banking executives and consultants who normally focus on checking accounts and credit cards spent a recent conference talking about “cross-selling” and “incentive compensation.” Those are code words for Wells Fargo, and the up to two million accounts that its employees opened without customer permission as they sought to meet unrealistic sales goals, AP reported.

And circulating among Wells Fargo’s biggest competitors is the scathing report from the bank’s board of directors that laid blame for its toxic sales practices on negligent management.

Eager not to be the next Wells Fargo, some other big banks say they are examining their own practices against the board report and actively looking for ways to avoid any sales issues before becoming engulfed in a similar kind of scandal.

“Any major occurrence in the industry is going to impact us all,” said Richard Hunt, president of the Consumer Bankers Association, the trade and lobbying group that organized the recent CBA Live gathering.

Wells had by far the most aggressive sales goals among the big banks, and the board’s report said the problems date back at least 15 years—but that executives had little interest in dealing with the issue until it spiraled out of control. The board also reclaimed another $75 million in pay from former CEO John Stumpf and former community bank executive Carrie Tolstedt, saying they dragged their feet for years.

That report has been making its way through top executive offices at nearly every big bank, executives said.

JPMorgan Chase’s upper management is reviewing the report, Chief Financial Officer Marianne Lake said last week. The same is happening over at Citigroup. Both banks have looked at their own sales behavior, and say they found nothing amiss. Bank of America Chief Financial Officer Paul Dinofrio declined to say whether executives reviewed the report, but stressed “we feel good about our sales practices.”

For the industry, the next potential shoe to drop will likely be from federal bank regulator the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, whose bank examiners are currently combing through each of big bank sales programs. Their findings are expected this summer. And the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is also doing its own investigation.
