USAID-Tarabot worked with the Governorate of Diyala to improve service delivery through capacity building and institutional changes. Sustainability was foundational to USAID-Tarabot’s training of governorate staff on procurement systems and tools, and the introduction of project management processes and techniques. Capacity building was followed by practical hands-on application to deepen skills learned, as demonstrated by the use of new project management techniques on a neighborhood rehabilitation project in Diyala. To illustrate ownership of these initiatives and ensure the sustainability of Tarabot’s work, the Government of Iraq allocated $59,300 in cost share funding to support USAID-Tarabot’s activities with the Governorate of Diyala.
