31-12-2003 Film Ref. V-F-CR-F-00751-C
This film captures the 12 year period between 1991 and May 2003 during which the ICRC's engineers and technicians were involved in the rehabilitation of water and sewage treatment facilities in Iraq. It demonstrates ICRC's work to ensure that the most vulnerable communities benefited from a reliable water and sewage system, providing drinking water, treating waste and minimizing waterborne diseases. Over the years, this programme in Iraq became one of the ICRC's major involvement in the field of water, sanitation and habitat and the film shows how the programme adapted constantly to the ever-changing political and economical situation in the country.
