The Iraqi Prime Minister noted that the country is struggling with the effects of climate change and severe water shortages, which led to a rise in the country’s desertification.

Al-Sudani stated that, in addition to assisting farmers and the private sector, the government has carried out several initiatives to improve the agricultural sector and implement cutting-edge irrigation and farming practices.

Burrows expressed willingness to be present in Iraq, provide the Iraqi agricultural sector with the latest innovations, and utilize Iraqi lands to boost output.
