List of phases

  • Phase IV

Phase IV, which ran from February 2010 to January 2012, aimed at ensuring that available information regarding water and land allows for evidence-based decision-making on emergency, rehabilitation, development and natural resources management interventions.

  • Phase III

The objectives of Phase III, running from January 2008 to December 2009, were to further develop land and water monitoring networks and resource assessments, and enhance the natural resources management capacity in the country. This effort was aimed primarily at Somali authorities, institutions and other stakeholders in coordination with international players, and strengthened through improved and dedicated information management systems.

  • Phase II

During Phase II, which ran from October 2004 to September 2007 and built upon the achievements of the first phases, SWALIM’s objective was to compile and make available accurate and up-to-date information on water and land resources to support and enable improved water and food security, as well as to promote the sustainable use of natural resources for the people of Somalia.

  • Phase I

Phase I of the project (funded by EC) was implemented from June 2003 to February 2004 with the objective of providing a new baseline in water and land information in Somalia. This phase also provided technical assistance to improve the planning and implementation capacity of Somalia Aid Coordination Body (SACB) partners.

  • Establishment

The establishment phase of the project was funded through Italian government assistance and aimed to set up the basis for water and land resources management in Somalia. The focus was on recovering and collecting lost, dispersed and damaged information assets from the pre-war period and establishing the infrastructure for managing and expanding upon these assets.
