The Iranian national workgroup to combat dust storms has put it on its agenda for this year to prepare a joint comprehensive scheme in cooperation with Syria and Iraq under the oversight of the United Nations Development Program. 
According to Ali Mohammad Tahmasbi Beiragani, director of the workgroup, the purpose of the four-way collaboration will be to restrain dust storm sources located outside Iran's borders.
