    [size=52]Türkiye builds the “carrot” and Iran diverts the rivers.. An Iraqi expert discusses “the weakness of the Iraqi negotiator”[/size]

    [size=45]Al-Mansour (Baghdad)[/size]
    [size=45]Iraq transfers water from the Tigris to the Euphrates to fill the major shortage, while Turkey continues its efforts to complete the Al-Jazra Dam, which seriously threatens the Tigris, and Iran continues to divert the course of the rivers flowing to Iraq. The prominent expert Ismail Dawoud discussed the water situation in the country, and the weaknesses of the Iraqi negotiator - Especially during the Turkish President's recent visit to Baghdad - in a session organized by Majeed Gallery in the Al-Daoudi area in the Al-Mansour neighborhood, as part of its weekly activity held every Friday evening.[/size]
    [size=45]The researcher and activist Dr. Ismail Daoud on “The Iraqi Negotiator and Water Diplomacy,” presented at the session by critic Ali Hamoud Al-Hassan.[/size]
    [size=45]Daoud stated in his lecture that “60% of fresh water flows or is stored in waterways shared by two or more countries, and that about 153 countries share lands within at least one of the 286 transboundary river and lake basins, in addition to 592 networks of groundwater aquifers.” Cross-border, and this means categorically that the decision regarding any of these watercourses will inevitably be affected by more than one country.”[/size]
    [size=45]He also pointed out that “the issue of water was a driver for the establishment of many cooperation frameworks in various parts of the world, and there were only a few cases in which violent conflicts erupted across borders because of water alone.”[/size]
    [size=45]Daoud pointed out that the continuing tensions related to cross-border waters have led to increased interest in the term “water diplomacy” and the expansion of its use since the mid-1990s.[/size]
    [size=45]The lecturer explained four levels of water diplomacy: first-level diplomacy (government representatives in official negotiations and discussions), second-level diplomacy (unofficial representatives in unofficial occasions), third-level diplomacy (people’s diplomacy), and an example of what he did. In 2012, sheikhs and notables from the marshes of southern Iraq visited the city of “Hassankeyf” in Turkey and met with representatives from this city to express solidarity and reject the construction of the Ilisu Dam, which threatens their existence together, and a joint statement was issued as a result of this visit, raising the banner, “Save Hassankeyf to save the Marsh Arabs.” Then (diplomacy between levels), which is the public or private interaction between the official representatives of the conflicting parties, whether governments, political entities, or armed popular movements, with the aim of changing positions and resolving the contract.[/size]
    [size=45]The lecturer criticized the official Iraqi talk about the outcomes of the negotiations with Turkey based on the recent visit of its president to Baghdad, by “talking about fair shares of water,” and the issue of dams was not addressed, including the “Jazra” dam, which is “an example of how the Iraqi negotiator deals with upstream countries.” “, an indicator of weakness in water diplomacy due to the weakness of the Iraqi negotiator; Iran diverted the course of some rivers due to its need for water, and Turkey exhausted the Euphrates River with large dams, while Iraq diverted water from the Tigris to the Euphrates due to weak water diplomacy.”[/size]
    [size=45]Ismail Daoud, born in Baghdad, holds a doctorate in political science and human rights from the Italian University of Scuola Santana. He has been interested in the issue of water since 2011, and founded the Save the Tigris River campaign in 2012, which turned into the “Save the Tigris” organization, with its current headquarters in the Netherlands. He wrote the book “The Iraqi Negotiator and the Iliso Dam,” which was published in 2017 by the Arab Foundation for Studies and Publishing - Beirut. He wrote many articles on the issue of water, including “The Iraqi Decision Maker and the Official in the Makhoul Dam Case,” published in 2022 in the Al-Nahar Al-Arabi newspaper. Daoud is a coordinating member of the Crowd Program on International Cooperation in Transboundary Waters, led by the world-renowned Delft Institute for Water Education.[/size]
    [size=45]Researcher Ismail Daoud:
    At a time when Iraqis (citizens, intellectuals, and elites) are seeking to mobilize all their work and contribution tools so that this country can rise up healthy again, and so that Iraq can return to its role in the region, the discussion on the issue of water diplomacy comes as an urgent necessity. No country can register its presence and progress without understanding and cooperation with its neighbors regarding the issue of shared and cross-border waters. In a glorious gallery evening, we opened the wound because it is the best way to sterilize it. We talked about the continuing ambiguity regarding the future of the Jazra Dam project that Turkey is building on the Tigris River. Which will greatly affect the imports of this important river. We also talked about ways to activate dialogue with Iran regarding the rivers that have been cut off and changed their course, and how cooperation can be drawn up between the two countries regarding cross-border rivers. Water diplomacy has more than one level, and the intellectual and academic have a role in it.”[/size]
