This ﬁnal report synthesizes the results of the Iraq Salinity Project, a research partnership between ﬁve Iraqi ministries and national agencies and an international team of researchers, led by ICARDA, specializing in land and water management, crop improvement and plant breeding, geoinformatics, and socioeconomics. This research builds on previous work and technical studies done in Iraq and on the expertise of Iraqi agencies working to promote agricultural development over the past decades. It provides solutions based on the analysis of historical data and new data compiled in the Iraq Salinity Project and provides methods of implementation to reduce salinity, or reduce the impact of salinity on agriculture and the environment in Iraq. The solutions and implementations presented in the project documents are a synthesis of a body of research. This research includes ﬁeld-level and technical studies in southern and central Iraq, a new body of data and information collected and compiled by the research team, and a series of technical and background papers.
