The web-doc "Iraq without water", a journey on water from Mosul to Basra, has received the Albert II Prize of Monaco from the United Nations Association (UNCA) in the "climate change" section. It was awarded to Sara Manisera for the whole team that realized this work: the videographer Arianna Pagani, the web-developer Remo Romano, the NGO Un Ponte Per that produced the webdocumentary and all the environmentalists who are the protagonists.

The documentary details the tragic consequences of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, symbols of the fertile crescent and the birth of civilization, recounting a devastating water crisis that is affecting the lives of millions of Iraqis. As in the north of Syria, told by Daniela Sala, also in Iraq the reasons are multiple: maxi-dams in Turkey and Iran, drought, pollution. In a region increasingly exposed to the climate crisis, a group of young environmentalists has been mobilizing for years, risking their lives to defend the right to water.
