Monoga Syndicate Water Reticulation for Rehabilitation of Degraded Rangeland (Botswana)

Botswana

Titre : Monoga Syndicate Water Reticulation for Rehabilitation of Degraded Rangeland (Botswana)

Pays : Botswana

Numéro projet : BOT/SGP/OP4/CORE/08/15

Domaine : Land Degradation

Durée : 11/2008 — 11/2009

Bénéficiaire : Monoga Borehole Syndicate Management Committee

Présentation
The Monoga Borehole Syndicate has 25 members who individually keep between 10 and 150 livestock units and altogether number around 1000. All these animals congregate at one point for watering rendering a large area surrounding the borehole completely degraded. Furthermore, animals do not use all the communal rangeland efficiently as they tend to overgraze those areas proximal to the water source and under utilize those further from water sources. The syndicate purchased and renovated a 50,000 gallon water tank from Botswana Railways. The group has managed to obtain Botswana Government assistance to reticulate water to individual kraals (1-3 km away from the borehole) as a strategy to reduce congestion at the watering site and allow the surrounding area to be reclaimed or restored. The assistance did not however include a fence around the tank, a roof on top of the tank, a water metering gauge and the labour cost for the digging of the trenches. These are required in order to make the watering system completely effective. The fence will secure the area in the vicinity of the tank, the roof will enable the water to be consumable by people at the individual kraals, the gauge will facilitate the pumping as water is used at the homesteads or kraals whilst the labour is required to speed the excavation of trenches for the pipes.
