Who We Are
What does the Save the Tigris and Iraqi Marshes Campaign aim to achieve?
We seek to link groups and movements concerned with the adverse impacts of megaprojects on the Tigris and Euphrates. We advocate for policies that secure the sustainable and equitable use of water for all who live in the region. Our campaign believes a paradigm shift is necessary: instead of being a source of rivalry, water could be force for peace and cooperation between all the countries and peoples of the Tigris-Euphrates basin.
Join us in defending the right to water
Water covers two-thirds of the surface of the Earth, but Fresh water is 0.002% on Earth. What will your children drink?
Objectives of the Campaign
The campaign works to promote alternatives to megaprojects on the Tigris River and its tributaries, to promote water courses as a tool for sustainable peace between different communities, to preserve the cultural heritage along the Tigris River, to raise awareness on river pollution. The campaign develops advocacy and awareness activities that involve all relevant actors: local communities; civil society organisations; media; national and local institutions; societies of experts and intellectuals; research centres; universities and others.
Express your solidarity with our campaign to preserve the water resources of Mesopotamia
