Water Harvesting in Border Provinces (Sudan)


Titre : Water Harvesting in Border Provinces (Sudan)

Pays de réalisation : Soudan

Date d’accord du prêt : 17/04/2012

Bénéficiaire : Dams Implementation Unit

The project, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2013, consists of the construction of three dams, the rehabilitation and heightening of an existing dam, and the construction of 65 hafirs in six provinces : Blue Nile, White Nile, Sennar, South Kordofan, East Darfur and South Darfur. It includes all civil and hydro-mechanical works, and complementary works necessary for the dams and hafirs. It also includes the technical services required for review of studies and design, and for completion of design and tender documents for the project, as well as construction supervision.

The project aims at developing the water resources in rural regions located in a number of border provinces in the south of the country, through the construction and rehabilitation of small dams and hafirs (ground reservoirs) to collect and store flood water for a number of valleys with seasonal runoff. The water provided by these facilities will be used for drinking by the nomadic herders and animals in those regions. The project will contribute to the resettlement of nomadic herders, and help avoid conflict between pastoralists and farmers within the borders of Sudan and across the border with the State of South Sudan. It will also contribute to the recharge of groundwater aquifers, reduce soil erosion and desertification, improve the living, economic, social and environmental conditions of the population, as well as reduce the spread of diseases and support stability in the rural regions in the south of the country.

Coût du projet : KD 18.9 million
Montant du prêt : KD 15.0 million (*) 1 KD is equivalant to about 3.6 US Dollars

Financement : The Arab Fund’s loan covers about 79% of the total project cost. The Sudanese Government will cover the remaining cost of the project and any additional cost that may arise.
