reconstruction and rehabilitation of Iraq will require enormous resources
and calls for the participation of experts not necessarily available in
Iraq now. This effort will be a multi-national one and is anticipated to
involve many of the UN agencies and other international organizations and
NGOs, in addition to a future Iraqi administration and government.
This Web site aims therefore to build a database of experts, from both the
sizable Iraqi communities abroad and other experts who might be
potentially useful to this reconstruction effort. Of the large Iraqi
community of experts working outside Iraq, many of them will be too happy
to contribute to the reconstruction effort for short or long-term
assignments in Iraq. For non-Iraqi experts there will be a number who had
experience in reconstruction activities in post-conflict situations in
other countries such as the Balkans and who are willing to make use of
that experience in Iraq.
