Mogambo Irrigation Project, Supplementary Feasibility Annex 1: Hydrology

The Mogambo project is situated in the Lower Juba basin. The climate is semi-arid and annual average rainfall is only about SO0 mm per year. Almost all crop water requirements are met from the Juba river. Chapter 3 summarizes crop water requirements for the Mogambo project and other developments planned for the next 10 years and gives incremental water usages expected in the immediate, short and medium terms. An analysis of river flows expected in each month at various locations is reported in Chapter 4. These water availability are compared with incremental future water uses, which take account of all medium-term development on the Juba, to give the net availabilities at Mogambo. Drainage rates from cropped areas are discussed in Chapter 5, using daily water balances and allowing for rainfall, infiltration and evaporation.

Mogambo Irrigation Project, Additional study for and alternative development

The terms of reference for this Additional Study called for two alternatives (A and B) to be investigated. The development for alternative A has been based on the proposals of the Supplementary Study and allows for future expansion to the full area. The development for alternative B has been chosen as the beat area to be implemented independently of any future expansion. Alternative A identifies 2 052 ha net of surface irrigation and 163 ha net of overhead irrigation, and alternative B Identifies 1,809 ha net of surface irrigation end 122 ha net of overhead irrigation.

Present and future irrigated agriculture in the Shabelle and Juba rivers

In this report, written after a visit to Somalia to evaluate irrigation potential, the hydrometric data base is questioned as regards both its validity and its representativity. Steps to improve the basic data are proposed which include technical assistance to check and re-establish station ratings over a period of one year. The design plan of the juba high dam is discussed and attention drawn to the necessity of seeking the best professional advice to determine this parameter which has a direct bearing upon the safety and the cost of the dam. Present and proposed irrigation in the Shebelle and Juba valleys are examined.

Somalia Comprehensive Groundwater Project; Project paper

The goal of the project is to strengthen the capability of the water Development Agency of the Government of Somalia to design and implement a national water resource development program. The Project will assist in the collection of adequate national hydrogeologic, economic and social data and will provide technical assistance and commodities for a production drilling program. Data collected under the will enable the National Water Cormnittee (NWC) to establish priorities for a rational approach to national water resource development

Homeboy irrigated settlement project Volume 1, Soils

(Extract from the summary)The present report describes the methods, findings and conclusions of the soil survey investigations, forming part of the Phase II studies which were carried out in the Homboy Irrigated Settlement Project Area. Chapter 1 gives an account of the general natural and human resources of the area and Chapter 2 describes the soils in more detail, drawing on information gained from the present survey and investigations. The principles and methods employed for arriving at the land suitability classification for the proposed development are described in Chapter 3, along with general guidelines as to suitability for rain fed agriculture. The findings, conclusions and recommendations of this study are presented in the andlsquoSummary and Conclusionsandrsquoat the beginning of the report.

Water laws in Moslem countries - 2

This volume is a revision of the 1954 FAO agricultural paper no.43 including recent legislation and 27 country studies covering some new independent states. Larger investments in water development are increasingly being made in most of these countries. This requires emphasis on legal protection against over-development of water and encouragement of efficient management
