    [size=45]The Dhi Qar Environment Directorate announced the transfer of two batches of barrels contaminated with toxic chemicals from the Petronas oil company site operating in the Gharraf oil field north of Nasiriyah to the treatment site in Basra Governorate, while revealing that environmental violations had been monitored in a number of government departments and administrative and legal measures had been taken in their regard.[/size]
    [size=45]Dhi Qar Environment Director, Dr. Mohsen Aziz, told Al Mada: “The Environment Directorate periodically monitors all service, industrial and agricultural activities for the purpose of determining the true reality of those activities and monitoring their impact on the environment and the extent of their commitment to environmental controls, determinants and conditions.”[/size]
    [size=45]Aziz added, “The Chemicals Unit in the Dhi Qar Environment Directorate supervised the transfer of 600 barrels contaminated with toxic chemicals from the Petronas company operating in the Gharraf oil field to the treatment site in Basra Governorate,” noting that “the transfer process took place through a company licensed by the Ministry of The environment was achieved through two meals, at 300 barrels for each meal.”[/size]
    [size=45]Aziz explained, “The barrels were used to transport and preserve chemical materials used within the oil company’s work, and when they are unloaded, they are transported for treatment in Basra for the purpose of re-using them again by the company for the same material.”[/size]
    [size=45]He pointed out that “supervising oil activities falls within the tasks of the Environment Directorate in the field of conducting site inspections and monitoring the transportation of waste and oil field waste, whether resulting from well drilling operations or contaminated barrels and containers,” indicating that “the process of follow-up and supervision comes to ensure that all hazardous waste is treated.” In the oil fields and properly treated by environmentally licensed companies.”[/size]

    [size=45]The environmental reality in Dhi Qar Governorate, whose center is the city of Nasiriyah (375 km south of the capital, Baghdad), faces a number of challenges represented by the lack of green spaces, the frequent dust storms, the widespread encroachment of sand dunes, in addition to irregular waste dumps, random islands, lack of municipal services, and the throwing of sewage.

    [size=45]He explained in a press statement followed by (Al-Mada) that “there is a serious trend to eliminate this unhealthy phenomenon due to its negative effects on people and the environment, as there are higher committees for waste management, including recycling and exploitation of waste to generate electrical energy, and supporting plans to reduce waste generation, especially Hazardous waste (such as plastic waste, batteries, etc.).”[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Lami pointed out that “the government worked to cooperate with international organizations, especially the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and its subsidiary institutions, in managing the Iraqi climate file through technical and technological support and assistance in capacity building, as well as in financing some projects,” stressing that “there is high-level coordination with Neighboring countries, Arab countries, and developing countries face the dangers of climate change, which is a problem that the planet Earth suffers from in general.”[/size]

    [size=45]A local directorate in Dhi Qar Governorate revealed in early December 2022 that it had issued more than 10 warnings and prosecuted a number of activities that violated environmental controls, conditions, and determinants. While it indicated that some of the lawsuits included violating government activities, it confirmed its follow-up of all activities that cause environmental pollution, whether in the two sectors.

While it warned of oil pollution, overfishing, and improper waste management, it indicated the adoption of a plan to organize a comprehensive biological survey of birds, mammals, plants, and fish in the marsh areas.[/size]
    [size=45]Dhi Qar Governorate includes more than 12 sanitary landfill sites distributed among the districts and districts of the governorate, but only two or three of them comply with the approved environmental specifications and controls, which necessitated the prosecution of the departments responsible for them through legal and judicial procedures, as officials in the Environment Directorate indicate that several warnings have been issued.
