Somalia geophysical survey report

The report is made by two sections: The report with syntheses of all activities carried out and related graphic enclosed The annexes with: „X The Awdal Hydrogeology section „X The West Borama Basin „X The Zeila WSS „X The VES curves The first three annexes are constituted by a report and related graphics enclosed. In the fourth there are only graphics and a legend to insert before each group of graphs. A detailed list of all files to print (in printing order) is reported in the next page. The print instructions for each CAD files (*.dwg) are inserted in the same file, hence opening the files with AutoCad you can read the instructions at the graph side. The graphs (as well as the maps) have been already positioned to fit the print phase. If you move it part of the graph may fall out of the paper. So, please, make the appropriate setting (printing scale, paper format and paper position) then ascertain, before printing, that the graph centres the output paper. If you get any problem contact me. The files are divided in 5 sub-directories plus one (DATA) with all the VES data collected during the mission. For each group of VES in the DATA sub- directory there is an excel file with the field data. In the report and annexes subdirectories there are also some WMF (windows metafiles) with the figures directly enclosed in the reports. It is only for archive, not for printing. Sorry for editing in such a complicate pattern, but the material was too much to be edited in a simpler way.

Social economic survey 2002: Somalia; Technical report on design and implementation

(Extract from the foreword)This report is the outcome of a multi-sectoral nationwide household survey, the first of its kind in Somalia for over two decades. The report provides statistics on demographic and housing characteristics, access to basic services, household income and employment, modes of communication and women's participation in family decision making and community-level activities, among other things. Individually, these statistics provide valuable information on different facets of socio-economic characteristics, and together they reflect to a certain extent, the well-being of an average Somali household.

El Nino flood in Belet Weyne district, Hiran region - Somalia; A household economy assesment

In order to improve the flood warning, preparedness and response in the flood prone areas the SC (UK) Belet Weyne food security team carried out a flood baseline assessment. The aim of the flood baseline assessment was to:br br+ Understand how the El Nino flood of 1997/1998 affected the riverine food economy group in Belet Weyne District particularly the most vu1nerable groups.br + Use this information to recognize the associated risks and impact of similar floods on agricultural production, livestock holdings, social support systems and infrastructure.br + Identify and understand the local community flood monitoring systems, preparedness plans and response ability.br + Use this assessment to enhance relief co-ordination efforts and operational preparedness of UN, International and local agencies when floods occur.br + Identify appropriate strategies that would contribute the control of floods.br + Improve and develop weak links between flood warning information generators and information users.br; br This flood assessment was done using the Household Economy Approach (HEA). This approach is the core methodology used by Save the Children (UK) and other partner agencies throughout the region to assess food security and livelihoods. In this particular assessment the HEA looks at the impact of the El -Nino flood on the livelihoods of the affected communities at household level. It distinguishes each different socio-economic group's (wealth group) access to food and income, as well as their ability to afford daily necessities during this year. The HEA identifies the risks and shocks associated with the flood as well as each wealth group's respective coping and risk minimizing strategies.
