Disturbing action by the a3jamiyy as expected.

If we just could build a huge wall between Iraq and Iran so they would be unable to interfere in our politics/country like in this video.

A delegation from the Anbar provincial council on Tuesday (December 4th) signed a memorandum of understanding with a consortium of companies based in the UAE to invest in and cultivate Iraq's western desert.

The move comes five months after the Iraqi forces took control of the area and destroyed al-Qaeda's last armed strongholds there, officials said.

Saadoun al-Shaalan, the council's deputy chairperson, told Al-Shorfa that under the agreement, the companies will cultivate the area, plant trees and build roads there.

The agreement also involves establishing agricultural facilities such as poultry farms, cattle pastures and fodder plants, as well as cultivating a green belt in desert areas near cities, he said.

The memorandum will come into effect within the next few days, al-Shaalan said.

That is very good news Sheytan. Just read it earlier today. About time!

Maisan is surprising yet again.

The most worrying think is that Turkey, Syria and iran are closing their dams. The marshes are still struggling due to this (among many other factors).

It's difficult to see what can be done about it.

The Iraqi Ministry of Science and Technology on Thursday (December 20th) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the European Union (EU) to build a $2.6 million landfill for dumping radioactive nuclear waste, according to a ministry statement.

During a joint press conference with Iraqi Science and Technology Minister Abdul Karim al-Sammarae, the head of the EU Delegation to Iraq, Ambassador Jana Hybášková, said the memorandum will complete joint activities and programmes that began in 2008.

The grant allocates money to design and prepare a landfill and train Iraqi scientists in the field, she said.

Al-Sammarae said the MoU is slated to take effect for a maximum of three years, during which all destroyed nuclear facilities are to be liquidated.

Iraq’s most senior energy official called for coordinated Arab action on climate change while Egypt’s environment minister proposed a regional green fund at a conference in Baghdad Monday.

Deputy Prime Minister for Energy Affairs Hussein Al-Shahristani warned of the risk of flooding, and also pointed to desertification and sandstorms affecting Iraq in his call for regional efforts to combat climate change.

The two-day conference comes after the World Bank warned in a report this month that global warming will have dire consequences for the Middle East and North Africa, with even hotter and drier conditions devastating everything from agriculture to tourism.

“All Arab countries must work under the Arab League to confront climate change,” Shahristani said in opening remarks to the conference in Baghdad’s heavily-fortified Green Zone.

“The danger now is the threat of flooding in many areas, in addition to the phenomena of desertification and sandstorms that we suffer from here in Iraq.”

Iraq’s environment ministry estimated in 2009 that 39 percent of the country’s surface was affected by desertification, while a further 54 percent was under threat.

It also estimated that Iraq loses around 250 square kilometers of arable land annually due to degradation of various kinds.

Also at the conference, Egypt’s Minister of State for the Environment Mostapha Hussein Kamel called for the establishment of an Arab fund to back environmental projects in the region. – AFP

AnaeCo (ASX: ANQ) has inked a memorandum of understanding with Repindo Resources to cooperatively explore the implementation of AnaeCo’s DiCOM™ alternative waste technology at a suitable site in Basra, Iraq.

Repindo Resources provides equipment, services and support to several international business sectors including the waste management sector.

The company is working with the Basra Governorate Council to deliver a 500,000 tonne per annum waste facility.

Under the terms of the MoU, AnaeCo and Repindo will consider the technical and commercial feasibility of deploying AnaeCo’s patented DiCOM™ solution under licence in Basra.

The DiCOM™ bioconversion process incorporates advanced sorting, recycling, anaerobic digestion and aerobic composting to recycle municipal solid waste into renewable energy from biogas, agricultural grade compost and recyclables such as steel, aluminium, glass and plastics.

AnaeCo would manage the design and commissioning of the proposed waste facility and Repindo would have project management and construction responsibilities.

The waste facility would be owned and operated by a joint venture company between Repindo and the Basra Governorate Council.

Iraq works on aerial radioactivity detection system
21-01-2013 - 10:22

Iraq Society
Environment Ministry in Diyala province announced on Monday that it started working on a pioneering system to monitor radioactivity in the air, confirming that this system will provide an early warning in case any radioactive pollutants circulate the city.

“This project, first of its kind in detecting radiation and measuring air pollution percentages, will soon be concluded”, said head of Diyala’s Environment directorate, Abdullah Al Shamri in a statement to Alsumaria. He pointed out that “this system will monitor air radioactive pollution and will provide an early warning in case any radioactive pollutants are present”.

“The system will read the data provided by other secondar/> The Radiation Protection Center is a monitoring and consultative entity affiliated with the Iraqi Ministry of Environment established for the first time in 2003. It aims to protect the environment, preserve nature and biodiversity, promote sustainable development resources by drawing general policies and setting yearly plans to protect the environment and find suitable solutions for surging problems and finally coordinating with ministries and specialized institutions.y systems via the internet”, added Al Shamri, highlighting that “it also analyses the data provided and conducts measurements to determine the radioactive isotopes and the energy emanating due to a program conceived for this purpose”.

“The directorate initiated project operation in the city of Baqubah after the specialized technical team concluded the installation phase.

Environment Ministry announced on October 2011, that an early warning system has been installed on border regions to detect external radioactive pollutants that come from neighboring countries and confirmed it started building a main station in radiation protection center alongside other stations within the city.

interesting project. I had in the past proposed an airborne gravimetric survey aircraft for the environment ministry... which they didn't buy naturally good to see they're finally catching on with modernity.

Anbar installs three meteorological stations
ENVIRONMENT | 2013-01-22
Anbar University's Renewable Energy Research Centre last week finished installing three meteorological stations in Ramadi, al-Qaim and al-Nukhayb, officials said.

Centre director Saleh Mohammed Saleh said physicists and geophysicists will collect and analyse data at the new stations, which will provide information on agricultural sciences, water resources and desertification, as well as offer explanations on weather changes in Iraq.

Scientists also will use the data they collect to ensure emergency measures are taken before disasters like hurricanes, floods and heavy rainfalls, he said.

"Scientific staff with the required skills and experience was trained to manage the meteorological stations, which will relay data to the responsible authorities in Anbar and Baghdad, while also saving this information in a modern database on a sophisticated computer network system," Saleh said.

Places like agricultural research centres, water and dam departments, and transport and travel offices will rely on these stations to monitor the weather and record temperatures and wind velocity as these affect travel activities and navigation in the province, he said.

A committee of engineers and technicians completed the installations in accordance with international designs and specifications, said Rifaat Matar al-Dulaimi, director of Anbar University's media department.

They erected 50-metre poles with thermal and air sensors to record temperatures and wind velocities at each site, he told Mawtani.

Additional stations are slated to be installed in other areas in the future, he said.

Dhergham Abdul Kareem, who is supervising the weather observation station in Ramadi, said additional stations would be built in the coming period as Anbar province – which constitutes one third of Iraq – is "vast".

"Towns and villages in Anbar are remote and widely dispersed, and a large part of the province is desert and needs more than six meteorological stations," he told Mawtani.

Committees of scientists and engineers will monitor the stations, he said, adding that staff will be trained to conduct regular equipment repairs and inspections using an electronic inspection system.

Didn't know where to put it -.-
