Khuzestan is best known as Iran’s oil-rich province and is central to Iran’s oil industry. It is home to 90% of Iranian oil production, including Iran’s second-largest onshore field. Despite its rich land, the people of the region are not very prosperous and have suffered a lot. Sharing about a 650-km borderline with Iraq, Khuzestan was severely damaged during the 8-year Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s. The aftermath of the war is still clear even after 34 years since the end of the war. Among the other major problems the people are suffering from are the dust storms and drought. Many people are living in poor conditions.
