TOPSHOT-IRAQ-WATER-AGRICULTURE-DROUGHT

TOPSHOT - A woman washes pots and utensils in a stream of water in the village of Sayyed Dakhil, to the east of Nasariyah city some 300 kilometres (180 miles) south of Baghdad, on March 20, 2018. Farmers in Sayyed Dakhil have traditionally lived off their land where there used to be no need for wells, but a creeping drought is now threatening agriculture and livelihoods in the area. Weather patterns are largely to blame for the crisis, but while rain accounts for 30 percent of Iraq's water resources, the remaining 70 percent is drawn from rivers and marshes shared with Iran, Turkey and Syria, which has played a part in Iraq's drought.
