“I live in Til Ziwan village in Qamishli. I have been farming since childhood; I’m 65 years old now and still farming. This is inherited from our ancestors, and we will not abandon it. Because of the scarcity of rainwater in the last two years and climate change, we have a decline in production. If the situation stays like this, it will be very threatening, especially in our area, as it is one of the most important areas in Rojava and Syria regarding crop production. We will plant wheat again this new year; even if the rainfall decreases, we will count on irrigation. Although this will considerably increase the cost, this is the only solution we have.”
