Micro level study on the integrated development potential of Wadis in Somaliland and Puntland


Altai Consulting was commissioned by the Water and Sanitation Programme (WSP) of the World Bank to conduct a study on the positive and negative impacts of existing water infrastructure interventions in Somaliland and Puntland. The study was based on a case study approach combining qualitative and quantitative perception data, as well as technical data collected on-site to triangulate perceptions of water quality with actual composition of water, socio-economic cost-benefit analysis, and water catchment capacity.
The findings of the study supported the World Bank Funded Water for Agro-Pastoral Livelihoods (WALP) Pilot project, which aims to strengthen government capacity to implement small-scale water interventions with the view to provide “safe water for human consumption, sufficient quantities for livestock consumption, and enhanced fodder and agricultural production”.
