Baghdad Consultant in industrial development and investment, Amer Al-Jawahiri, confirmed that the population explosion is a new crisis that needs people to plan and implement to contain it.
He told the National Iraqi News Agency (NINA): Slums are a very important issue for the lower middle classes, wondering: Who is treating the population explosion that has started to increase exponentially? Who prepares the infrastructure?
Al-Jawahiri added that the population explosion requires a sustainable strategic view to find solutions to it.
He continued: 4 years ago, there was a statistic indicating that slums constitute 8% of the population, and now the percentage is greater, indicating that there is a need for people who plan, will and real capabilities are implemented to confront this problem.
