Environmental impact assesment manual and guidelines for the Somali water sector

(Extract from the preface)brThe overall goal was to prepare a practical user-friendly EIA process (including environmental, social and economic assessment) to enhance the integration of environmental planning in the EC Rehabilitation Programme for Somalia, with particular applicability to the rural water sector. The manual was prepared during November-December 1997 as part of the IUCN Somali Natural Resources Management Programme. During field testing in the North Western region, consultations were held with the Somali authorities and most of the organizations that are actively involved in implementation of water development projects in the Region. A core team of Somali professionals from these institutions and organizations carried out the field testing together with the IUCN consultants. Project areas for the testing were selected by three implementing agencies (OXFAM, Swiss Group and AICF). Results from the tests are briefly summarized in case studies referred to in the guidelines.

Evaluation of water projects and assesment of water needs in Hiraan and Middle Shabelle Regions

During the hostilities in Somalia the main target of destruction by the rival warring factions were the rural water points, As a result, the Somali pastoral communities are currently exposed to poor rain seasons. European Development funded projects and other donors rehabilitated water points in a number of rural and urban centres. The study concerns an assessment of water rehabilitation project activities funded by the European Union (EU) in Somalia. The activities that will be under assessment include the water project by the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) and OXFAM Quebec. The ADRA Project is situated in the Middle Shabelle Region, while the Oxfam Quebec project is situated in the Hiraan region. Both projects have been started up during the1994 as water rehabilitation project. The consultant assisted by local experts, having discussed with the authorities and elders concerned and surveyed the regions, will evaluate the projects completed or currently undertaken. In addition, sufficient data will be produced which will assist the EC Somalia Unit to undertake the funding of rehabilitation of rural! water supply points. The consultant will have to examine the movement of the pastoral communities and the environmental impact of the current proposed interventions.
