    [size=45]Desertification, in light of climate change, lack of water revenues, and weakness in government dealings, has become a worrying concern in the Iraqi province of Najaf. Desertification constitutes 6 per thousand of the total area of ​​Najaf, which amounts to 28 thousand square kilometers, or about 11 million and a half dunams.[/size]
    [size=45]According to a statement by Najaf Environment Director Jamal Abd Zaid. Najaf Governorate is located in approximately the central part of Iraq, and is bordered by the governorates of Karbala and Anbar to the north, Babil and Diwaniyah to the east, Muthanna to the south, and the international border with Saudi Arabia to the west.[/size]
    [size=45]The area of ​​Najaf Governorate is (28,532) square kilometers, representing a percentage of (6.6%) of the total area of ​​Iraq. Its climate in the summer is hot and dry, and the temperature sometimes reaches more than 50 degrees Celsius, and the temperature in the winter sometimes reaches zero, and the average Annual rainfall in Najaf ranges from one to five drops per node.[/size]

    [size=45]Jamal Abdel Zaid explained that “if we measure (desertification) by the agricultural area of ​​Najaf Governorate or the green area in the first place, it constitutes 20%,” stressing that “to stop this desert encroachment, a group of projects led by other formations and ministries must be followed up and encouraged.” The director of the Najaf Environment described these projects as “good but often lagging,” citing in his words “the northern green belt, which is 13 kilometers long and 130 meters wide, but the rate of destruction is high.”[/size]
    [size=45]Jamal Abd Zaid criticized what he called “government officials shifting responsibility for this issue,” noting that the Najaf Environment Directorate “is keeping pace with this situation to reach solutions as environmental legislation allows us.”[/size]
    [size=45]Iraq, which is rich in oil resources, is one of the five countries most vulnerable to climate change and desertification in the world, according to the United Nations, especially due to increasing drought with rising temperatures that exceed fifty degrees Celsius at some point in the summer.[/size]
    [size=45]The Iraqi Prime Minister, Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani, announced on March 12, 2023, during the Iraq Climate Conference held in the city of Basra, located in the far south of the country, and in the presence of ambassadors and officials from the United Nations, the launch of a afforestation initiative to combat desertification and dust storms in the country suffering from the effects of change. Climate and water shortages. Iraq, a semi-desert country with a population of more than 43 million people, had announced that Turkish water projects had reduced its water share by 80%, while Ankara accuses Baghdad of wasting large amounts of water. The Ministries of Agriculture and Water Resources in Iraq had previously directed to reduce the area allocated for agriculture, due to the lack of water revenues coming from Turkey and Iran, and the Ministry of Agriculture warned that water scarcity threatened to collapse the food security of Iraqis.[/size]
