The activities of the Economic Recovery Enhancement Project and support for agricultural and small projects in February.

The Economic Recovery and Agricultural and Small Projects Support Project PERMA2 organized a series of training sessions in Salah al-Din and Nineveh Governorates on topics of civic engagement and social cohesion. The project conducted intensive training for teaching staff in Salah al-Din Governorate (Beiji, Tikrit, Samarra), targeting 25 teachers of both genders. The training consisted of two phases where beneficiary teachers conducted workshops using non-formal education mechanisms.

In Nineveh, the project concluded the second phase of training for social structures, targeting managers of governmental institutions from the Nineveh Plain, represented by the directorates of districts, municipalities, agriculture, and community police. The training focused on the precise diagnosis of community tensions by local community leaders, summarized around water and service issues. Furthermore, the project team continued its field visits in Nineveh to select a group of projects to be implemented by youth for the purpose of training them on fully supported business management skills.

The project’s activities included settlement sessions regarding the unpaid financial dues for Salah al-Din farmers for the year 2014, as well as sessions concerning fish farm owners whose farms were closed by the government. These sessions were attended by representatives from the Farmers Union in Nineveh and Salah al-Din Governorates, farmers, fish farm owners, and the Agriculture Committee in the Iraqi Parliament .

The PERMA2 project is being implemented in the Salah al-Din and Nineveh governorates, aiming to provide an environment of coexistence among community members through mediation, settlement, and integration. Additionally, it aims to support agricultural and small projects through training sessions.
