    Project
    Enhancing Land and Water Resources Management in Somaliland and Puntland - GCP/SOM/059/EC 2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The FAO Somalia Water and Land Information Management (SWALIM) programmehas been successfully operating in Somalia for almost 20 years, serving government institutions, Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs), development agencies, and United Nations bodies engaged in assisting Somali communities whose lives and livelihoods depend directly on water and land resources. The programmeprovides high quality water and land information, crucial to relief, rehabilitation and development initiatives in the country, to support sustainable water and land resources development and management. The current project, funded by the European Union, is integral to the FAO-SWALIM programmeand was designed specifically to address the requirements of Somaliland and Puntland. The project aimed to strengthen the capacity of all responsible government institutions by creating an Information Management Centre (IMC) able to provide the information and services required to design strategies, plans and infrastructures to improve access to water and sustainable use of land resources, especially for rural communities.

    While population growth and economic development are putting unprecedented pressure on renewable, but finite water resources, especially in arid regions, scarce land and water resources are affecting food security and sustainable water management. FAO identified the need to implement a digital database built upon remote sensing and information technologies that can monitor and report on agricultural water productivity over Africa and Near East, accessible through the FAO Water Productivity through Open access of Remotely sensed derived data portal (WaPOR). The WaPOR database is now operational at continental level (all African and Near East countries covered by the 250 m spatial resolution data), national level (two beneficiary countries can access the WaPOR database at 100 m resolution) and subnational level with a spatial resolution of about 30 m, so far including eight areas of interest (river basins or irrigation schemes). Water Accounting Plus (WA+) reports based on remote sensing have been completed for three river basins as planned (Litani in Lebanon, Awash in Ethiopia and Jordan basin). An action framework at national level for capacity building and participatory decision making is currently being developed to make effective a “demand-driven” approach based on national and local needs.
