Ladies and gentlemen,

It is a privilege to be here, at the invitation of the organisers of the 1st Baghdad International Water Conference on behalf of SRSG Jeanine Plasschaert, who unfortunately can’t be here today. This is an important conference because water and the potential lack of it is so intimately connected to Iraq’s future prosperity.
