Abstract

Iran-Iraq boundary has been of great social, cultural and economic importance since ancient times. The first civilization emerged in this land and the events took place around it affected the human societies. Today, the preservation of the environment is an important issue to everyone. People make use of all devices and possibilities to create an appropriate condition to survive. Environmental pollution in common areas between Iran and Iraq has long been affected the environmental issues of the two countries and imposed irreparable damages upon them. The present study, using a descriptive research method, examined the common environmental pollution in Iran-Iraq boundary and the international governing documents. The present article attempted to study the air pollution caused by dust storm and the air pollution in border areas caused by unconventional weapons (chemical and DU), with the order of importance. In this regard, the research findings and results show that international law, including international conventions, does not meet the environmental requirements of the two countries of Iran and Iraq in pursuit of sustainable development of the region, moreover, international cooperation, especially regional cooperation, can play an essential role in the creation of an appropriate basis for sustainable development.
