The regions along the Shabelle and Juba Rivers are often described as the bread basket of
Somalia. Before the civil strife, this region enjoyed a vibrant irrigation system that made
it possible to produce tonnes of food both for local consumption and export. But many
years of civil strife left the system in need of rehabilitation. To make meaningful and
strategic rehabilitation possible, SWALIM and partners recognised the need for a central
source of information on the irrigation infrastructure status, interventions and agriculture.
This Irrigation Information Management System was developed to provide users with
a platform to discover what is available, query the system for specifi c datasets, carry
out basic analysis, print maps and also download and transfer data and information to
typical desktop data processing and presentation applications.
