About this blog...

I am a former leader of a Human Terrain Team in Iraq. My intent with this blog was to identify relevant, open-source materials on Iraqi culture, society, politics, religion and economics - just about anything on or about the Iraqi population in general.

I am continuing the blog now only sporadically, as a means of information distribution in support of efforts to improve a vital program hamstrung by failures in execution.

Humanitarian Status

The NCCI (an organization that coordinates NGO work in Iraq) and Oxfam (a British aid organization) released this report last week on the humanitarian situation in Iraq. I haven't had a chance to review their stats and see how credible they sound, but it is probably a pretty good snap shot of the current status for a lot of the civilians - food, education, employment, refugees, water, electricity, etc...
