Known as The development of municipal water supply and sanitation inIraq , the programme was initiated during a week-long mission to Iraq at the end of July by representatives of IVL, the Swedish Trade Council, and the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. IVL was responsible for organising two different seminars for high-ranking political officials in Baghdad and Basra, at which the needs of the programme and Swedish expertise were discussed.
Later this autumn, about twenty Iraqis will spend a week in Sweden to acquire more knowledge of sustainable water and sanitation solutions, and to meet Swedish companies in the sector.
