Project Title : Emergency Response to drought affected communities in Dangorayo and Qardho districts Bari Region Somalia

Project Summary : Access to safe water is a significant problem in Somalia, particularly in Puntland where poor quality water and poor management and general lack of maintenance continuously aggravates the situation.

This situation is further compounded by erratic rainfall patterns, which produce both drought and flooding. Currently following, failed Deyr rains in the last quarter of 2015, areas of Bari, Nugaal , sanag among others are experiencing severe drought conditions that have severely impacted on livelihood conditions of beneficiaries in the area. In Dangorayo and Qardho districts, there is acute water shortage with families receiving on average about 6 litres of water and the costs of water are above household capacities with some populations depending on the good will of neighbours. Water prises have increased from USD 2 for a barrel to USD 6 a price beyond the reach of many. Pastoralists communities on the other hand have lost livestock or have been forced to sell them cheaply t be able to meet other basic needs. The animals lack water and pasture and their body conditions are deteriorating Water supply improvement and access to sanitation facilities is a major component of the overall of the Water Sector programme to reduce child mortality and morbidity in Somalia. The priorities of these project include enhancing access to safe water as a life saving measure as well as restoring and upgrading water facilities in affected locations.
