Client Services

Much of the information retrieved and generated by SWALIM over the years is stored in the form of books and reports. These publications are available to our clients on-line and at our main reference library located in Nairobi. In addition, clients are free to visit our liaison offices as well as the data centres in the ministries of environment, water and agriculture in Hargeisa (Somaliland) and Garowe (Puntland), where hard and soft copies of our information products are available. Walk-in clients are also able to receive hard copies of maps, digital data (such as shape files or tabular data) on CD or DVD and demonstrations on how to use our online information portals to retrieve the information they require.

All information from SWALIM is available at no cost – we only require that FAO/SWALIM is credited as a source when the information is used.
