A woman grazes animals close to Al-Bu Hussain village which sits on the bank of a former canal which has dried up, in Diwaniya, Iraq, November 8, 2022. "Climate change is a reality in Iraq," said the United Nations mission in Iraq, adding that the country was the world's fifth most vulnerable to the fallout from global warming due to rising temperatures, lower rainfall, salinity, and dust storms. "Desertification now threatens almost 40 percent of the area of our country - a country that was once one of the most fertile and productive in the region," Iraq's President Abdul Latif Rashid told the climate summit in Egypt last week.

Taha Yassin, 46, stands inside the deserted home of his neighbour, Hedyya Ouda who's family have left the village of Al-Bouzayyat, in Diwaniya, Iraq, November 8, 2022. "The village is empty," said Hedyya Ouda, one of the few remaining residents when Reuters visited her in October. Hedyya and her husband stopped growing wheat and barley three years ago because of water shortages, sold their livestock and were forced to travel about 60 km (40 miles) twice a month to buy drinking water. When Reuters returned to their village in November, both had left for the city. REUTERS/Alaa Al-Marjani SEARCH "CLIMATE MIDEAST WATER" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

Hikma Meteab, 48, carries her daughter Ghufran Abbas, 3, through the courtyard of their family home in Al-Bu Hussain village on the bank of a former canal which has dried up, in Diwaniya, Iraq, October 11, 2022. Hikma's husband, Abbas Elwan, committed suicide in August after attempts to find water for his parched farmlands failed. Abbas received a monthly unemployment allowance, but with dwindling crops and rising food prices he went into debt. In desperation, he tried digging wells to grow vegetables. Each well cost the equivalent of his monthly allowance. Each time water would emerge for a few days, and then dry up. "That was his last hope, and there was no water," Abbas's brother Ali told Reuters. REUTERS/Alaa Al-Marjani SEARCH "CLIMATE MIDEAST WATER" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
