In Syria, a growing number of farmers and rural communities are moving away from areas in the country’s northwest to the border areas of Turkey and Jordan.
In Jordan, where farmers live in the north, there is a similar trend.
In Iraqi Kurdistan, farmers in the south are moving north.
In all three regions, there are people living in the areas where they are moving, according to the International Institute for Agricultural Research (IIAR).
In Iraq, a new agricultural area, known as the Nabi Shams, is emerging, according the IIAR.
In the south of Iraq, in the Iraqi autonomous region (Ankara), the Kurdish Regional Government has been building a new irrigation system that it hopes will reduce the water footprint of agriculture.
It is also trying to improve soil quality by using new varieties of corn and wheat.
In northern Syria where farmers are moving to areas that are not being covered by agriculture, the IRA says there are about 1.2 million people in the Nabeishah region, which borders Turkey and the Syrian-Jordanian border.
It estimates the area to be the size of Turkey’s western provinces.
It says the area has been hit hard by the drought, and is also being inundated with water, which has not been properly treated, resulting in the spread of diseases and the introduction of diseases such as the coronavirus, which is now being transmitted through water.
There are also fears of diseases spread through water contaminated by agricultural runoff.
In a report published on March 25, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) said it was concerned about the impact of the drought on agriculture and climate change in northern Iraq, where the number of cases of dengue and chikungunya have increased by 50% in the past year, according a statement from FAO Iraq Director, Naser Abo Al-Khatib.
The drought has been particularly severe in the northern regions of Anbar, Anbar province, and Anbar and Salahaddin provinces, he said.
“This is a significant increase in the number and severity of chikongunya cases, and there is concern that it is becoming more and more common,” said Al-Khattab.
“In addition, there have been reports of more cases of waterborne diseases like the dengus, the diphtheria, and the measles,” he added.
“It is a concern that these diseases are being spread by water.”
Al-Khassab said the drought in northern Jordan is affecting the ability of the water resources in that country to cope with its growing demands for water.
He said the situation is exacerbated by the fact that water from the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers is flowing through the area in large quantities, but also due to the fact it is also heavily contaminated with agricultural runoff that has been contaminated with sewage, fertilizers and other contaminants.
In Jordan, the area is also facing an increase in waterborne pathogens, which are transmitted by water.
Jordan has a total of 8.7 million hectares of land, of which 8.5 million hectares is under irrigation.
The remaining 3.1 million hectares are under agricultural development, according FAO.
Al-Khattab said Jordan is working to improve the water quality and water quality monitoring of the Tigries and Euphrate Rivers to reduce contamination.
“We are working on measures to improve water quality in Jordan’s Tigris River,” he said, adding that water quality testing and monitoring is underway in several other countries in the region, including Syria.
