“Sulaimani, Iraq (14 June 2015)—A new, non-partisan, non-governmental organization has been launch
here under the name Waterkeepers Iraq. Waterkeepers Iraq will initially focus in the upper watersheds of the Tigris River and its tributaries in Kurdistan, Iraq. Our hope is to expand there first by add additional waterkeepers who work to protect waterways in their local communities.
Eventually, the Waterkeeper model can spread to other parts of Iraq and to all the riparian nations of the Tigris-Euphrates Basins.”
