Mission of the organisation
Our mission is to protect and restore the environment of Iraq and the rich human heritage that it has fostered. We strive to achieve this mission through fulfillment of the following goals:
Improve the capacity of Iraq's institutions to protect its environment;
Develop a scientific database of environmental conditions and trends within Iraq;
Encourage environmental awareness and stewardship of Iraq's environment; and
Promote the sustainable use of Iraq's environment and resources.
Nature Iraq is involved in diverse activities related to biological diversity, sustainable development and protecting Iraq's water resources. Some of these activities include Habitat mapping and remote sensing, key biodiversity areas (KBA) surveys, socio-economic projects such as an aquaculture pilot project and planning for national park development. Nature Iraq also maintains two laboratories and does extensive water quality and sediment analysis. We provide training and consultative services to Iraqi government ministries and universities.
