This chapter discusses elements of the claims for environmental damage brought before the United Nations Compensation Commission (UNCC), which raised a host of legal, technical, and scientific questions. The chapter focuses on the critical issue of procedural and organizational aspects concerning the defense of Iraq and the challenges Iraq’s defense team faced. These challenges included difficulties in obtaining the assistance of experts due to funding questions and conflict-of-interest issues; access to the claims, reports, and other evidence; refused site inspection requests; and changes in underlying claims at times prejudicial to Iraq. It also raises concerns at the marginal role Iraq was allowed in the process.
