Brief description of major drainage basins affecting Somalia with reference to surface water resources

The purpose of this report is to provide a brief general description of the topography, drainage, rainfall and evapotranspiration of the areas concerned. Where available, this is supplemented by additional hydrological information. The report is meant to form a basis for future more detailed studies on the subject.br It should be pointed out that lack of data for large parts of the drainage basins (particularly those situated in Ethiopia) has meant that the information contained in this report had to be kept rather general.

Charcoal in Somalia: A woodfuel inventory in the Bay region of Somalia

pObjectives of the studybr To prepare for the multi-purpose management of the bushland the study team was set the objectives listed below.br 1. To identify the major charcoal-producing areas in southern Somalia.br 2. To carry out an inventory to determine the amount of available charcoal from these bushlands.br 3. To study the regeneration of the two main species used in manufacture, Acacia bussel and A. senegal.br 4. To evaluate the present state of the bushland and the effects of charcoal exploitation.br 5. To determine the benefits obtained from the bushland by the three communities present, i.e. the settled rural nomadic pastoralists and the charcoal workers.br 6. To determine the legality of customary rights of land, tree tenure and associated issues.br 7. To advise on the management of the bushlands. /p

Electrification of pump station

(Extract from Introduction text)br In a meeting in Mogambo on 10 February 1988, both Kreditanstelt fur Wiederaufbau (KfW) and Mogambo Irrigation Project (MIP) requested Sir. M. MacDonald and Partners Limited (MMP) to carry out a simple pre-feasibility study to evaluate the possibility of extending Fanoole hydropower supplies to serve Mogambo Irrigation Project. A draft terms or reference for the study handed over to MMP on 13 February 1988 are presented as Appendix 1. This study covers the current output and consumptions from the Fanoole hydropower station together with maximum production capacity and potential further users.

Dara Salaam Busley Agricultural Development, Project Annexes 6-11

The report describes the observations and recommendations resulting from a range management consultancy in support of the Soil Erosion Control Project implemented by the NGO Cooperazione Internazionale (COOPI) in Borama and Baki Districts, western Somaliland, and funded by the European Community. During the mission, focus was on biological measures to reduce soil erosion, in particular through range management techniques, and rehabilitation of eroded land. Because the first phase of the project ended early May 1997, recommendations aim especially at the proposed second phase- Somalia intends to increase its arable crop production, ultimately to attain self-sufficiency in cereals (except in wheat which cannot be grown in the country economically), decrease its import requirements of vegetable oils, become self-sufficient in cotton lint and exploit a potential export market in the Gulf and Saudi Arabia for water melons. brThe proposed project area has been found in the course of this study to be potentially suitable to further this overall objective: in most features it is similar, or better, than nearby areas where development projects have successfully increased agricultural production.BR Annexes to this Report:BR Annex 1: SOILSBR Annex 2: WATER RESOURCES BR Annex 3: SOCIO ECONOMICS BR Annex 4: AGRICULTURE BR Annex 5: LIVESTOCKBR Annex 6: ENGINEERING BR Annex 7: JILAAL MOOGI ZONE BR Annex 8: SURVEYS BR Annex 9: MANAGEMENT AND IMPLEMENTATIONBR Annex 10: IMPROVEMENT OF TILLAGE ON CRACKING CLAYSBR Annex 11: TENDER DOCUMENTSBR Annex 12: PRINCIPAL UNIT RATES ADOPTED (CONFIDENTIAL) BR

Groundwater Salinity Study October - November 1987

When agricultural operations in the Mogambo Irrigation Project (MIP) area started in 1985, the management team for the agricultural development of the area expressed its concern about the high salinity levels and low hydraulic conductivity of the subsoils. They suggested that this could seriously affect the growing of rice and other crops in the area. The same concerns were expressed by Sir M. MacDonald and Partners Limited (MMP) in their Supplementary Feasibility Study Report. This Program were set up to investigate br-the effects of crop rotations, particularly rice double cropping, water table depth and salinity br-the nature and permeability of subsoils in both the Mogambo project and the nearby Fanoole rice project br- the influence of irrigation on root zone salinity
