Marshland social environment in the southern Iraq has always been described as a
closed environment away from the anthropological and social studies for decades of time.
This has led to a real tragedy in this environment and to increasing sufferings of all the
generations from poverty, disease, illiteracy and accordingly social backwardness.
After 2003 political change the fact remains as it had always been in spite of the
(random and very humble ) so-called achievements under the cover of “restoring “ and
“refreshing” the marshlands .This project would hopefully be a step in the right way . It will
provide detailed accurate and scientific results for the area away from the doubts found with
the various concepts and data collected for the same area during the past four years.
