Bassara Dam and Irrigation Project will be of major social and economic importance for development of the region. It will create possibilities to obtain a large volume of agricultural products, extremely necessary to supply the population with food and processing industry with raw materials. The strategic goals for agriculture in Iraq should be efficient and stable growth, increased food security and high rural employment, all to be achieved in an economically efficient, socially acceptable and environmentally sustainable manner . In the short term, the priorities should be on immediate reconstruction of damaged facilities and re-establishing key agricultural services and improving their efficiency. With the establishment of a democratic government, liberalization of the economy and opening of markets, it is very likely to contribute significantly to the country's income, food security and poverty reduction.
