    threat to Iraq.[/size]
    [size=45]In an interview with Rudaw Media Network, the official in charge of the activities of the United Nations Development Program in Iraq, Mamnoor Rashid, who is currently in Egypt to participate in the 27th United Nations Conference on Climate Change, announced that the population of Iraq is about 40 million people now and will increase in the next ten years. to 60 million, and then the water problem in Iraq will be “more difficult.”[/size]
    [size=45]Below is the text of the Rudaw Media Network's interview with the UNDP activities official in Iraq, Mamounur Rashid:[/size]
    [size=45]Rudaw: How does climate change affect the agricultural sector in Iraq? How can Iraq face the phenomenon of drought?[/size]
    [size=45]Mamnoor Rashid: Thank you very much. I think you know that Iraq is one of the countries most affected by climate change, especially in terms of water security. Precipitation will decrease in parts of Iraq by 27% over the next ten years. The decline in rainfall that results from climate change will most likely lead to a temporary shortage of water, which in turn leads to a reduction in agricultural land areas, as the water needed for irrigation will not be available, which will seriously affect Iraq. The lessons we learn from governments and international players indicate that Iraq has three ways to confront this threat:[/size]
    [size=45]The first: taking the problem of water shortage seriously and farmers’ commitment to the directives and the use of advanced systems such as drip and covered irrigation and other systems. Think and work to determine the success of farming in these ways, there are many modern agricultural techniques that we see through agencies and organizations that seem to work.[/size]
    [size=45]Second: It is important for Iraq to know the amount of groundwater it owns and how to benefit from it for use and reuse, without allowing the extracted water to evaporate and make this water circulate in cycles during which it is repeatedly used. Groundwater must be used in a planned manner, and the amount of this water used in drip irrigation systems and the amount of water that goes for human use should be determined. For example, how can water that humans use, then go to agriculture and then into the ecosystem, and be used again. Water recycling systems must be in place.[/size]
    [size=45]Third: Iraq can dialogue with neighboring countries, relying on abundant information and data, and discuss with them the problem of declining water levels of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.[/size]
    [size=45]Rudaw: Do these repercussions resulting from climate change apply to the Kurdistan Region as well?[/size]
    [size=45]Mamnoor Rashid: Yes, it is the same. The Kurdistan Region also faced drought, and we saw through studies of the United Nations Development Program that many regions of the Kurdistan Region suffered from a lack of rainfall rates, which affected agriculture in those regions. We have to realize that the Kurdistan Region is the most important agricultural region in Iraq, and if the effects of climate change continue and the Kurdistan Region sticks to using current methods of agriculture, it will be very difficult for it to survive the effects of drought.[/size]
    [size=45]Rudaw: Do you have data on desertification in Iraq? And if Iraq continues like this, will it be stable in terms of food security?[/size]
    [size=45]Mamnoor Rashid: I think the situation will get worse if Iraq continues like this. In every crisis, not only the climate change crisis, if work is not done to find solutions and it is treated as a passing crisis, the crisis will turn into a permanent crisis. If Iraq does not deal with the climate change crisis as a permanent and continuous crisis, the crisis will spiral out of control and its solution will no longer be possible. It must first be realized that water is declining, and desertification has occurred and is occurring, and the data of the Water Conflict Organization indicate that Iraq suffered in 2021 from 25 effects of the water shortage crisis, and desertification is one of them, and this means that Iraq suffers from the largest problem of water shortage and the highest rate in the world .[/size]
    [size=45]I think that there will be a growth in the population over the next ten years, as its population now stands at 40 million, and perhaps it will then reach 60 million, which will exacerbate the problem. This will cause growth in the agricultural sector to lag behind growth in other sectors, because water is decreasing and farmers will be reluctant to farm, and along with the weakness of the agricultural sector, the country's economy will weaken, and it will no longer be able to support the agricultural sector, while 80% of Iraqi food security is dependent on in global markets. The data shows me that Iraq is unable to rely on locally produced food, and it cannot marginalize the agricultural sector, and it must ensure the progress of its agricultural sector so that by 2050 it will be able to secure food for at least 50% of its population.[/size]
    [size=45]Rudaw: How many people do you think will need food aid in the next ten years?[/size]
    [size=45]Mamnoor Rashid: It depends on the country's economy and food production. Iraq was the food basket for all Arabs, but it now imports food from abroad. If Iraq diversifies its economy, and does not rely solely on the revenues of the oil sector and diversifies its revenues so that the private sector is strong and brings revenues, then job opportunities will increase, the economy will revive, and Iraq will not need food aid. But if it continues on its current path, there will be four million people in need of food aid. I hope that this does not happen, because the Iraqi government is working on this threat, and I am optimistic because the people and the government are aware, and they will diversify the economy and prevent this from happening.[/size]
    [size=45]Rudaw: What is the area of ​​agricultural land that decreases annually due to climate change?[/size]
    [size=45]Mamnoor Rashid: The data we obtained from satellites indicates that 3% of Iraqi lands are threatened with desertification, and some statistics indicate that 16% of Iraqi lands are damaged due to drought, but climate change now indicates that the percentage is 3%, meaning that the percentage is not exceed 9%. There are other causes that have also damaged the Earth, and climate change is not the only one.[/size]
    [size=45]Rudaw: Has any of the population been displaced due to desertification?[/size]
    [size=45]Mamnoor Rashid: Statistics from the International Organization for Migration indicate that this has happened. There was displacement, especially from the marshlands, because most of their areas had dried up, which prompted the population to go to the cities in search of job opportunities, and studies of the International Organization for Migration indicated this.[/size]
    [size=45]Rudaw: How responsible is Iraq for environmental pollution?[/size]
    [size=45]Mamnoor Rashid: the population or the government? I would like to point out that the task of the government everywhere is to draw up policies and issue laws. For example, there are no public transportation here, and everyone is forced to use their own car for their transportation. I am from Bangladesh and the population of Bangladesh is 200 million people, but we have public transportation. Cars are one of the main factors in polluting the environment. There is also the production of hot gases from oil fields, which is one of the reasons. The Iraqi government has a clear vision to solve the problem of hot gases produced by the oil fields, and intends to solve it by 2030. This would be good if it was accomplished. The government should not be looked to alone for the solution, we all share the responsibility equally.[/size]
    [size=45]Rudaw: What will be the impact of the United Nations Climate Change Conference on climate change in Iraq?[/size]
    [size=45]Mamnoor Rashid: Iraq seeks to put the water crisis in the marshlands, the decline in agriculture and its effects on the lives of Iraqis on the table. This conference is very important for Iraq, to ​​show that it is affected by climate change, as Iraq needs international assistance to face climate change. Iraq has a strong position in the renewable energy manifesto and plans to reduce methane emissions by between 1 and 2% by the year 203, and it has announced that if it receives international assistance, it can reduce methane emissions by 15%. Likewise, Iraq announced a project to produce 12 gigawatts of clean energy, and this is very good for Iraq participating in this conference, because it will need the help and participation of others, and thus it can show that it has a plan to confront the phenomenon of climate change.[/size]

    I would like to post this article in refute to a lot of the info in this article. It’s an interesting and long read so I’m only posting the headline and source. I want to go on record that I have no doubt there is climate change, has been from the beginning of time. BUT, it’s not caused by man imho.
