Iraq participates with distinction in the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt 2022.

The importance of this participation comes from the fact that Iraq is considered the fifth most vulnerable country to climate change, which negatively affects social groups and leads to armed conflicts between members of society that depend on water as a main source of livelihood and stability. As a result, their regions are witnessing mass displacement and the disintegration of their societies. Therefore, the United Nations Development Program will provide distinguished support to Iraq to reduce the repercussions of climate change and adapt to its effects on the growth of Iraq and its recovery from the phenomenon of desertification and the drying up of rivers and marshes.
