Janine Hennis-Plaschert, Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Iraq, warned about the lack of water and inefficient management of water resources in Iraq, in places where the Yazidi minority lives.
"In Iraq, the availability of water resources and their proper management are especially important. Last month, I visited the Mesopotamian swamps in the south, seeing firsthand the many problems Iraq is facing. A decrease in precipitation, water scarcity, salinization of soils and water, inefficient resource management and population growth - all this has affected the entire country. In addition to climate change, the active reduction of water inflow from neighboring countries is another serious threat.
The impact of water scarcity on poverty, displacement and conflict has serious implications for the stability and long-term prosperity of Iraq. Representatives of national minorities, Yezidis, suffer in the majority, since in their places of residence in 2014, during the war with the terrorist group ISIS, all infrastructure, wells and all reservoirs were destroyed.
The United Nations in Iraq is working in partnership with Iraq on water resources management, and we can all contribute by seeking to limit our environmental impact," Hennis-Plaschert tweeted.
"The future starts with all of us today."
