In line with the stipulations of Item II in Article II of the 'Agreement on Technical and Economic Cooperation' signed in Beijing on April 18, 1978, between the Government of the People's republic of China and the Government of the Somali Democratic Republic, the China National Complete Plant Export Corporation Dispatched a 'study group to Somalia in November, 1978, and, on April 28, 1979, signed in Mogadishu the andrdquoNotesandrdquoon the Talks about the Project of Well Drilling Tug Dher, Sanag, Bari and Nugal. The Notes stipulates that the Chinese Government would undertake the project of drilling 30 wells and of their wellhead assembly in the four northern regions of Somalia. Besides, China agreed to drill 6 we11s for Hargeisa water Supply expansion project, which was proposed by the Ministry of Mineral and Water Resources. This the report for the task
This report is as a result of a feasibilty study on watershed management in Selected sub-watersheds to carry ou planning and control design for th development ofd Somali irrigated horticultural gardens.
This technical report is a part of a series of reports to be prepared during the course of the GTZ Water Quality database project. The activities relate to the assessment of the geological and water quality conditions of the Central Somalia were carried out from March to July 1986
During the course of the Comprehensive ground water development project (CGDP)a total of 118 boreholes were drilled in the Bay Region and Central Rangelands. 95 of these were in the Bay Region and 23 in the Central Rangelands. The data accumulated in this efort are subject of this volume of the report.

This publication presents a methodology to quantify yield response to water through aggregate components which form the "handles" to assess crop yields under both adequate and limited water supply. The method presented in part A takes into account maximum and actual crop yields as influenced by water deficits using yield response functions relating relative yield decrease and evapotranspiration deficits. Part B gives an account of water-related crop yield and quality information for 26 crops

(Extract from the SUMMARY )Br This note considers the consequences of using the rice milling facilities recently constructed at the Fanoole Rice Project (FRP) to mill rice produced on the Mogambo. Irrigation Project (MIP) as an alternative to providing this project with its own milling facilities. The following main conclusions are reached: br (i) The processing capacity at FRP is insufficient to handle the entire crop production from the Mogambo Project. br (II) The comparison of capital and running costs of the two alternatives given below clearly indicates the advantages of a separate mill for Mogambo. br
(Extract From introduction)This volume contains hydrographs of estimated daily flows (discharges) at selected gauging stations on the Jubba and Shebelli rivers for varying periods between 1951 and 1989. It is intended to be a companion volume to the Hydrometric Data Book', but for completeness and ease of reference much of the Introduction to the Data Book is repeated here. All original data has been checked, with errors corrected and missing values in filled where possible. Figure 1 shows the locations of the gauging stations and Table 1 summarizes their main hydrological characteristics
(Extract From Introduction)This land evaluation of the Farjano Settlement Project in the Lower Shabeelle Region of Somalia examined 16 000 hectares of alluvial soils. The evaluation was requested by UNHCR with the aim of locating land suitable for semimechanised rainfed (dryland) agriculture on which refugee settlers will become farmers, under the direction of a.farm management system that provides land preparation and planting services. The evaluation was also to examine the land suitability for settlement location, forestry and small-scale irrigation. A topographic survey was to be carried out to provide a contoured base map, and an additional topographicai survey was requested of the Farjano village irrigated farm (Sheikh Mohammed Hikam).
The comperehensive groundwater development project (CGDP) has been in progress since July 1981 under the Water development Agency of the Ministry of Minerals and Water Resources, Somali Democratic Republic. Originally it was scheduled to end in 1984, the project was extended until July, 1986. This interim report provides an update of project activities from July 1984 to July 1985.

(Extract from Introduction)The project was concerned with the operation of the hydrometric network of river level and flow gauging stations on the two main perennial watercourses of Southern Somalia, the Juba and Shebelli rivers, The project was initiated following a request by the Somali Government for assistance to bridge the gap between the end of a FA0 funded project (FAO/TCP/SOM 8906 + 0104) in 1980/81 and the proposed establishment of the national 'Water Centre', part of a UNDP 'IFF country programme originally scheduled for 1985. A joint proposal (April 1983) by Sir M. MacDonald and Partners (MMP), and the Institute of Hydrology (IOH) was accepted by the Overseas Development Administration (ODA), and the project commenced in November 1983
