    Iraq Presentation Against Desertification

    Roughly 50 people attended an environmentally-themed presentation entitled "Climate Change and Desertification in Kurdistan". The presentation took place in the Sulaimani Governorate building today at 10:00am local time and called on Iraqi citizens and political leaders to take steps to manage desertification.

    A number of Kurdish media agencies were in attendance as well as doctors from Sulaimani university. Members of the Green Environment Group (GEG), a group of volunteer Iraq youth, will visit areas affected by desertification in order to work with local communities in maintaining soil which is in danger of desertification. The GEG is an offshoot of the Global Citizen's Corps, which receives funding from the INGO Mercy Corps.
