More than 5 decades without climate treatments
In addition to security risks and corruption, the risks of climate change stand out, as the expert in the field of environment and climate, Ahmed Saleh, confirms that “Iraq is one of the countries affected by climate change because it has not applied treatments to fix climate change for more than 50 years,” indicating that “Iraq has diversity.” Geological and biological geography provides a fertile environment for living.

Abdul Kadhim explained to Shafaq News Agency, “The organized private sector, which is registered with the Companies Department, pays a tax, and insures its employees with the Social Security Law and others, can survive to some extent in light of the climate changes, such as the scarcity of water and the high temperatures that Iraq is suffering from.”
As for the unorganized private sector, according to Abdul-Kadhim, “they will be negatively affected by climate changes, as they depend for their livelihood on daily earnings to meet their multiple needs and livelihoods, so climate changes will affect them in the future.”
He stresses the need for “the government to give care and attention to this category, by creating a production base that can attract the unorganized private sector to the organized one to contribute to the gross domestic product, and to continue their free work in accordance with the government’s controls and instructions, and this will lead to their continued receipt of salaries and wages even in light of the change.” "climatic".
