How will the conference help to drive these megaprojects essential for Iraq's economic development?


  • The Conference will bring together professionals from around the world working in relevant industry sectors such as health, safety, and the environment in order to share their knowledge and best working practices when developing mega projects in Iraq.
  • A high‐profile panel of national and local policymakers will explore the changing face of environmental policy, with Basra leading the way for Iraq with its regulatory framework
  • The Conference will also look at the following questions: how can policymakers engage private companies involved in the mega projects to implement these new political initiatives? How can the rest of Iraq’s provinces be encouraged to adopt this regulatory framework within their developing economies, and to create and utilise environmental products that will contribute to a more sustainable future for Iraq.
