Somalia flow forecasting model

(Extracts from the introduction) The Somalia flow forecasting model (FFM) is a windows based flow forecasting model for the Juba and Shabelle rivers in Southern Somalia. The model is designed to predict river levels and flows at the main gauging stations on the two rivers. Reliable forecasts of up to a week in advance can be obtained based on the information about levels at the most upstream stations on the two rivers supplemented by observation at other stations

Improved agricultural production in the Oases of Bari region, North East Somalia. Mid-term review

This project was initiated by SAWA, a Dutch Foundation that had to withdraw after one year's input. Cefa an Italian NGO with similar experience and expertise, is continuing the project. This Mid-Term Evaluation assesses the progress towards achieving results, draws lessons learned so far and makes recommendations for the continuation of the project into a second phase being planned for December 2002 to August 2004. The problems being addressed in the horticultural sector are:ul; li Limited availability of qualified trainers and insufficient horticultural knowledge and technical skills at farmers level./li liLimited availability of good quality irrigation waterpoor quality of irrigation infrastructure and poor irrigation management./li liLimited availability of high quality inputs (seeds, fertilizers, tools and pesticides)./li

SACB project matrix; July 2002

The Somalia Aid Coordination Body (SACB) has developed a Project Matrix designed to illustrate activities of all SACB partners in Somalia, providing a practical tool for enhancing the coordination of aid to Somalia. The Project Matrix is intended to serve as a planning instrument by presenting the work of humanitarian and development organisations geographically and sectorally. It aims to foster greater coherence for emergency prevention, preparedness and response as well as promote greater cross-sectoral and harmonised rehabilitation and development initiatives. The Project Matrix is a “living document”it is constantly being updated with information received from SACB partners. Along with current project information, recently archived project information is also accessible through the Matrix. The dynamic nature of the Matrix can be captured on the SACB’s web page (www.sacb.info) where all confirmed changes are logged. CD Rom versions of the Matrix are available from the SACB Secretariat.

Mandera district water sources assessment

(Extract from the Executive Summary) Appropriate water resource development is an important component in ensuring sustainable livelihoods in Mandera District. In order to support planning activities within the water sector, Oxfam Quebec commissioned Rural Focus Ltd. to undertake a water source assessment and mapping assignment in Mandera District. The main objective of the assignment was to establish a GIS based database of water sources and related socio-economic data for Mandera District. A subsequent phase of the exercise was to use the GIS to develop a strategic plan for rehabilitation and management of existing water sources. A team consisting of members of the Pastoral Resource Team (PRT) of Mandera District and Oxfam Quebec assisted m the identification of the types of sources and information required. Data capture forms were developed and two teams covered Mandera District visiting in total 769 water sources. Relevant data for each source, covering the geo-referenced position, capacity, operational status, management system, demand etc. were obtained and entered into a Geographical Information System - (GIS)

Drought and hydrological variablility in southern Somalia

This thesis has been carried out with the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations, who are in the process of developing a GIS-based andNo.8220Land and Water Information System for SomaliaandNo.8221. It is hoped that this thesis will provide some contribution to their work.br Water resources in Somalia must be understood in the most detail, and in the most practical manner, by the Somalis themselves. However, there has been only limited formal characterisation of those water resources, and as a result, this thesis is designed in part to provide a comprehensive overview of the surface water resources of Somalia, particularly the south of the country. This includes analysis of the basic characteristics of both rainfall and stream flowbr The focus of the thesis is on drought, which is an inescapable problem in a climate such as that of Somalia. Various aspects of drought must be considered, and further objectives could thus be outlined as follows:br andNo.8226To consider the problem of drought definition, and put this in the context of water availability in Southern Somaliabr andNo.8226To investigate the techniques available for drought analysis and apply these to Somaliabr andNo.8226To understand the influences on climatological and hydrological variability in Somalia, and thus the factors contributing to droughtbr Characteristics of rainfall and runoff will be considered independently. Similar techniques will be used for both, although some differences exist since rainfall is an intermittent process while the rivers in question are permanent. Analyses of the two water sources will then be compared in order to provide a more complete description.br

Agricultural support project Mid-term review, Belet Weyne district, Hiran region, Somalia

Agricultural Support Project (ASP) is designed to address directly the need to improve family capacities to access irrigation water through a cost s h m g arrangement where communities contribute 20% of the cost of a pump. Extension workers from the villages are m e d on land (loaned freely to the community) in the cultivation and husbandry practices learned in phase 1. They gain access to improved seed varieties (grain, vegetables and fruit seedlings) so that they can replicate them on their own farms, The project has also introduced an agricultural training curriculum to local schools
