Environmental impact assesment manual and guidelines for the Somali water sector
SWALIM reference library
(Extract from the preface)brThe overall goal was to prepare a practical user-friendly EIA process (including environmental, social and economic assessment) to enhance the integration of environmental planning in the EC Rehabilitation Programme for Somalia, with particular applicability to the rural water sector. The manual was prepared during November-December 1997 as part of the IUCN Somali Natural Resources Management Programme. During field testing in the North Western region, consultations were held with the Somali authorities and most of the organizations that are actively involved in implementation of water development projects in the Region. A core team of Somali professionals from these institutions and organizations carried out the field testing together with the IUCN consultants. Project areas for the testing were selected by three implementing agencies (OXFAM, Swiss Group and AICF). Results from the tests are briefly summarized in case studies referred to in the guidelines.
