    [size=52]The water dilemma continues and resources are preparing a memorandum of understanding with Türkiye to solve it[/size]

    [size=45]The Ministry of Water Resources is preparing a draft memorandum of understanding with the Turkish side regarding Iraq’s water share to be signed during Erdogan’s upcoming visit to Baghdad.[/size]
    [size=45]It is noteworthy that Iraq lost many of its water bodies, and most of its lakes were out of service, causing damage to large societal groups, in addition to damage to biodiversity and livestock and agricultural wealth throughout the country. The water crisis prompted many people to migrate from their original residential areas to areas with abundant water.[/size]
    [size=45]Environmental expert Samim Salam said during an interview with Al Mada, “It is not hidden from everyone how serious the current water crisis that Iraq has been going through for years has led to the depletion of its strategic water reserves, the emptying of Iraqi dams and reservoirs, and the exposing of the country’s water security to real danger.”[/size]
    [size=45]He added, “The water crisis will negatively impact many of the basic elements of society, such as environmental, health, agricultural, economic, social, security, and tourism security.”[/size]
    [size=45]The environmental expert calls for “actual work to find immediate solutions to manage the water crisis at high-level diplomatic levels and to obtain Iraq’s water rights from upstream countries,” calling for “actual work to reform the water management system at the internal Iraqi level, given that the Iraqi water management system is one of the The most flexible systems, but they lack effective management.”[/size]
    [size=45]Samim Salam explains, “Iraq lost many bodies of water, which negatively affected fish wealth, the environment of migratory birds, and the environment of local animals and birds,” noting that “this caused an imbalance in the environmental balance and the biological and ecological balance.”[/size]
    [size=45]He explains, “Many of the lakes are at a critical level of water storage, and some of them have gone out of service, and some of them have turned into a natural stream, such as a lake, which creates many societal problems.”[/size]
    [size=45]Regarding rainwater and floods, the environmental expert confirms that it “may refresh dry areas somewhat, but it is not a source of actual storage. Reservoirs need continuous flowing water, as the percentage of water releases was one billion 200 cubic meters per second from upstream countries, which has been reduced to much less than that.” Iraq now receives 200-250 cubic meters per second from the Euphrates River, while as for the Tigris River, the release rate is about 500-450 cubic meters per second.[/size]
    [size=45]Samim Salam continues in his interview with (Al-Mada), “Rain is not an actual source of storage for many reasons, which can be summed up in the following: “The rain line was displaced from its location for reasons of climate change, so the areas with abundant rain became central and southern Iraq, that is, behind dams and storage sites, and they were not as efficient. As it was decades ago,” he pointed out “the absence of innovative solutions, such as harvesting water and storing it in homes, governmental and non-governmental institutions, storing this rain in basins used for domestic purposes, or linking it to the irrigation system of home or institutional gardens using one of the modern irrigation methods to avoid wasting water.”[/size]
    [size=45]For his part, Minister of Water Resources Aoun Dhiab confirmed, in a statement received by Al-Mada, that “Iraq is seeking to reach a clear agreement with Turkey regarding Iraq’s water share.”[/size]
    [size=45]The Minister of Water Resources added, “Iraq is preparing a draft memorandum of understanding with Turkey regarding the water file to be signed during President Erdogan’s visit, noting that he “informed Iran of the necessity of coordination regarding the rivers that feed the Tigris River.”[/size]
    [size=45]Aoun Dhiab also called on Iran to “open the waters of the Karun River to improve the conditions of the Shatt al-Arab,” noting that “the visit to Syria was successful and we reached an agreement to release water from the Tabqa Dam to the Euphrates River,” stressing that “there is no water war, but there are disputes and disagreements.”[/size]
    [size=45]It is noteworthy that Turkey reduced Iraq's water share in the Tigris and Euphrates rivers to seventy percent, which as a result reduced the area of ​​cultivated land and triggered waves of displacement of large numbers of farmers and those whose economic activities are linked to agricultural products towards the cities in search of job opportunities.[/size]
