The Federal Government of Germany represented by the Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) funded this project as well. The project is implemented in cooperation with the Basra municipality, local communities and the Action Against Hunger Organization as an implementing partner and it is a non-governmental organization.

"Iraq is particularly affected by climate change due to drought and salinity of irrigation water, including in the south of the country," said the French ambassador to Iraq, Bruno Hubert. "There is an urgent need to take some measures about this. In this context, France is deeply committed to supporting agriculture in Iraq through the World Food Program.

"The strong partnership between the World Food Program and France on development assistance has a positive impact on local communities, improving agricultural productivity and access to water. Project participants can also build small businesses and food value chains for what they produce in southern Iraq," he added.

In this way, initiatives help improve livelihoods in an environmentally and economically continuous manner.
