Présentation
Failure of rainfall linked to prevailing La Niña event affecting Somalia, has caused a severe water crisis in many part of the country. Central and South Somalia are in particular affected. Late 2010, YME\GSA\Norsom conducted field trip into the drought areas. The lessons learnt from the trip as well as consultations with WASH Cluster partners is the need for rehabilitation and construction of strategic water sources ; integrating a gender sensitive component of sanitation and hygiene promotion. Based on this, YME and its implementing partners are seeking funding for Rehabilitation and Construction of Strategic Water Sources in South Central Somalia.
The challenge of maintaining existing productive water sources in SCZ is increasing because of various factors ranging from poor maintenance, deteriorating essential borehole equipments such pump and generator, degenerating and contaminated water storage tanks, rusting raising pipes, leaking water distribution pipes and lack of ownership by beneficiary communities ; to inadequate investment in local human resource. YME proposes the drilling of 5 new boreholes and rehabilitation of 2 existing Boreholes complete with essential equipments, storage facilities, water distribution system and community hygiene & sanitation programs in Mudug, Galgadud and Hiraan.
