Rainfall, environment and water resource development in Somaliland and the Sahel

This thesis has relevance to any water and/or environment initiatives in both the Somaliland region and the Sahel. It aims to answer the desire among growing numbers of water managers and environmentalists to bring a more lateral approach to the water management debate globally. This thesis explores the general inter-relation between hydrological and man-oriented processes, in relation to current models for water resource development and natural resource management in Somaliland. Extensive reference is drawn to studies published elsewhere in the Sahel. The Sahel and Somaliland are introduced, along with definitions of drought and land degradation. An understanding of paradigms in development co-operation and sustainable development are shown, through a review of the evolution of guiding principles of water resource development in developing countries, and a statement of their usefulness in water scarce developing countries. The EU guidelines for strategic water resource development are reviewed amongst others.

Inventory of water sources in Bay and Bakool

The need for a comprehensive database of the existing water resources and sources can not be over emphasized as the country embarks on the rehabilitation of the destroyed water sources, and the development of new ones. With the increasing demand for permanent water source both for human and livestock consumption, due to increase in the population, it has become necessary to take stock of the available water resources and funds available for development and prioritize intervention strategies taking into consideration the current demand and needs. With the support of UNICEF, working in collaboration with other International Agencies in the water sector, the MOWMR initiated an inventory of all permanent water sources within Somaliland. The survey was conducted from 29th June to 25th July 1999. All the 6 regions of Somaliland namelyAwdal, Galbeed, Sahil, Togdheer, Sool and Saanag were covered in the survey. All known borewells, both functional and non-functional were surveyed. Dugwells within the vicinity of the borewells, potential perennial springs, piped water systems and berkerds within the vicinity of the permanent water sources were also taken into account during the survey. Water quality analyses from selected water sources in areas with high pollution risks were carried out. The study teams also examined the prevailing sanitary conditions around the water sources.
