ABSTRACT
Flagged up immediately after last year's invasion as a major concern by the United Nations and others, the worries about the environment in Iraq has all but disappeared from the reconstruction agenda, as of February 14, 2004. That is the view of senior British politician Peter Ainsworth. He will be asking British defence and international aid ministries what went wrong. Underlining the emerging crisis, the French news agency AFP reported from Baghdad this week that the interim environment ministry had been given just a $1 million for its first year's budget. Environment minister Abdul-Rahman Kereen has been touring western capitals in recent weeks to ask for assistance, but to little effect so far.
