To mitigate the current and projected water shortages, Iraqmust address and resolve issues of competing water demands and develop long term strategy for water policies based on cooperation between riparian countries. Since downstream countries depends on the political will of the upstream countries and because of real challenges facing international shared water resources especially the Climate Change impact, all riparian countries should work together for integrated management of the shared waters. Many agreements have been signed between riparian countries of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers basins, high official meetings have been held, protocols and cooperative committees have been formed to reinforce cooperation between them but still they failed to reach a permanent agreement.
