    This is very sad to still see Baghdad's living quality at the bottom of the list! GoI should pay attention to this vital issue. There should be an executive & dedicated department which looks after the environment and living quality in the whole of Iraq.

    People should also care more about their waste disposal, increase plantation, water management. There should be programs/adverts on all social media channels to educate and encourage people to be cleaner and greener. Let us all care more about Iraq and humanity.
