Nature Iraq is initiating a Project called the Upper Tigris Waterkeeper (IUTW). The primary problems of Iraq’s watershed are related to pollution and degradation to the rivers themselves and upstream water diversion projects. There are few advocates for Iraq’s watershed and the people who rely upon them. Government decision-makers view the rivers as abstract resources that they can pollute, divert, drain and trade away without consideration to the communities and ecosystems that are destroyed in the wake of these activities.
