About the SWALIM Data and Documents Repository - SDDR

The Somalia Water and Land Information Management (SWALIM) project has a large wealth of water and land resources data and documents for Somalia. All these data and documents are consolidated in this SWALIM Data and Document Repository (SDDR) application, which makes it easy for SWALIM clients and partners to access these data and documents in one place and easily.

SDDR does not aim at replacing existing SWALIM information services such as those offered through Web AGRIS, Geonetwork, Somalia Water sources Information Management System (SWIMS), Irrigation Information Management System (IIMS) etc. Its purpose is to structure and consolidate data to provide a single point of access for all SWALIM clients and partners.

SDDR consists of four major components:

  1. Water datasets
  2. Land datasets
  3. Publications
  4. Spatial datasets

All data can be viewed online as html pages which also provide links for users to download the data as Microsoft Excel files. On the other hand, all the documents, including maps, are presented as pdf documents. User therefore require to have a pdf reader to view the documents. If you do not have pdf reader installed, click here to install Adobe reader.

Note: All excel data download forms are based on microsoft office excel 2003 edition (.xls), subsequent versions will generate a warning message while opening excel, accept the warning and proceed to download the data.
