The city of Mosul has suffered as a result of ISIS’s occupation of many acts of sabotage and
demolition of the urban fabric, infrastructure and services of the city, as well as the human damage caused
to the population as a result of internal displacement, killing and torture. The research is concerned with
investigating the damage caused to the city of Mosul, with analyzing the real-time plans to monitor the
general needs of the population and trying to develop a well-thought-out road map for the reconstruction of
the city in several areas, the most important of which is housing, with a future vision for the city’s
development and adding some new activities to restore Mosul to its prestigious position among Iraqi cities
Because of its religious buildings and important historical monuments and its privileged location
overlooking the river and beautiful nature. The research problem is the absence of a central administrative
strategy that manages the reconstruction process, as well as identifying the parties involved in the
reconstruction process with specifying the steps to be followed to achieve a single central plan for all sectors
without any intersection between the engineering and technical disciplines involved in the reconstruction
process, with a schedule The time frame and funding required for the success of this plan. The research aims
to develop a central administrative strategy concerned with the process of achieving reconstruction by
determining the timetable for the progress of work while identifying the actors and the role of each party
without any intersection between them, relying on modern management mechanisms and techniques.
