The Consortium for Elections and Process Strengthening (CEPPS), in conjunction with core partners the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES) and the International Republican Institute (IRI), implemented the Iraq Provincial Election Activity (IPEA) program from October 2018 to September 2023. During a period when Iraq’s political situation fluctuated significantly, CEPPS leveraged locally led collaboration, learning, and adaptation to get regular updates on the political context and adjust its programming based on data and feedback shared by its partners and stakeholders.
