Who we are

Save the tigris capaign that was started in March 2012 by a coalition of civili society organizations from Iraq, Turkey and Iran.

Outline of the Save the Tigris and Iraqi Marshes Campaign

Who we are: Save the Tigris and the Iraqi Marshes is an advocacy campaign that was started in March 2012 by a coalition of civil society organizations from Iraq, Turkey and Iran. The campaign is part of an international effort to Save the World Heritage on the Tigris River from the impacts of the Ilisu Dam, a hydroelectric project being constructed on the Tigris River by the Turkish government.

Our Challenge: The campaign seeks to link groups and movements concerned with the adverse impacts of dams and other development projects on the Tigris and Euphrates. We advocate for policies that secure the sustainable and equitable use of water for all who live in the region and we oppose the privatization and commodification of water supplies and natural resources.

Objectives of the Campaign: The campaign works to draw attention to the negative impact of the Ilisu Dam on the Mesopotamian heritage both in Turkey as well as in Iraq and to develop advocacy and awareness activities that involve all relevant actors: local communities; civil society organisations; media; national and local institutions; societies of experts and intellectuals; research centres; universities and others.
