PORTFOLIO 2010/ Part 4
KLAMIRA VILLAGE, BAQUBA PROVINCE, CENTRAL IRAQ: Team leader Muhammad points to a former work area of NPA where formerly feared land, astride the main road connecting the east of Kurdistan with Iraq proper, is now in use for rain-fed wheat cultivation. The village was forcibly displaced by Saddam Hussein and on return in 2003, found their surrounding areas were mined. NPA plans to increase the area of clearance because farmers fear more land beyond the boundary of original clearance – and they need the land. Oil rich Iraq may one day need to feed itself again: mine clearance of potential agricultural land is a justified, proactive food security activity.
