Since the Iran-Iraq war of 1980, the socioeconomic infrastructure has been devastated because of repeated conflicts and economic sanctions, leaving the country in ruins. In the 10 years since the 2003 Iraq War, security has greatly improved and the economy is in a recovering trend. However, many Iraqis continue to eke out livings in a poor environment with inadequate supplies of power and water, thus developing socioeconomic infrastructure is a critical issue. JICA's support to Iraq is primarily focused on: 1) the promotion and diversification of industry for economic growth, 2) strengthening the basic economic infrastructure, and 3) building a foundation for the livelihoods of the people.
