    Shafaq News/ The Minister of Water Resources, Aoun Dhiyab Abdullah, announced on Thursday that the marshes in southern Iraq need approximately 6 billion cubic meters of water annually to avoid the drought they were exposed to during the current summer season, which is about to end.
    Abdullah said in the joint press conference he held at the office of Maysan Governorate with the head of its local government, Ali Douai Lazem, that the reasons for his visit to Maysan were to review the ministry’s projects implemented in the governorate and develop old ones, as well as to discuss a group of necessary and important options for developing the water resources sector, in cooperation with... Local government in Maysan.
    He referred to discussing how to sustain the marshes, especially the Hawizeh marsh, which is considered one of the most important marshes in the country, especially after its inclusion on the World Heritage List.
    The minister added, "The marshes suffered a lot this season," adding, "The indicator we have is positive, and we hope to achieve the needs of the marshes according to what was stated in the strategic study of water and lands that was prepared by us."
    Abdullah continued by saying, “There are specific quantities of water that must reach the marshes, and as a minimum, 5 billion and 800 million cubic meters must reach the marshes annually, and be distributed fairly,” stressing that “Maysan Governorate must be given its allocated water share.” For the marshes.”

    The marsh areas in southern Iraq are facing a major humanitarian and environmental catastrophe due to the scarcity of water, amid warnings of a fate similar to the drought that happened to them in the 1990s, which threatens the agricultural, fish and animal wealth there.
    These areas are witnessing a severe drought this year due to the lack of rain in the last winter season, in addition to the encroachment of neighboring countries on Iraq's water quotas, and the closure of the tributaries of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers that originate from their lands.

    The marshes are vast bodies of water that extend over parts of the southern governorates of Iraq, and species of fish, animals, and birds live in them, in addition to being settled by Marsh Arab tribes such as the Shaghanba, Karamsha, and Albu Muhammad, who depend largely on their waters for living.
    Since the marshes were dried out during the period of the former Iraqi regime, which was fighting movements revolting against it using the geographical nature of the marshes, the marshes have not returned to nature despite efforts to revive them, and despite their inclusion in the World Heritage List as a biologically and historically important site.
