    The Iraq Education Cluster Strategy is a consultatively developed document that outlines the Cluster’s approach and operational plan for responding to the current emergency in Iraq. This strategy is intended to guide partners in their implementation of an effective, timely, and quality emergency response. It allows for better communication of the needs of crisis-affected children to various stakeholders. The Iraq Education Strategy is meant to serve as a basis for quick decision-making that all partners have contributed to, understand and are committed to; helping ensure predictability and mutual understanding during an emergency response. The strategy combines not only the HRP and the 3RPfor 2019 but takes into consideration the plans of other cluster partners that are not included in these two planning frameworks.

    They sold our shares and were supposed to deposit it in our accounts. Proxy shares are gone. Still hoping I can get back in. Given the last 15 years I'm guessing I still have time before anything real happens.

    Supervisory Action Manual/Risk management controls in traditional banking (Commercial On the Arabic side of the CBI site, this document is long, has very little English, but if you are tracking the banking side of things on this ride, the few words that are will make you smile. If you're on the currency side, the highly developed Banking system this document outlines will make you smile, something for everyone. Let's call them Keywords.
