W 06-SWIMS Field Data Collection and Software Manual: SWIMS is a software developed by SWALIM to manage information on the principle water sources for Somalia. To guide SWIMS users, SWALIM developed two manuals: Vol I for field data collection; and Vol II for the software. The field data collection manual describes the procedures to follow in collecting data using the standard field data sheets. Technicians collecting data in the field make use of the manual to determine the attributes to measure, precision required etc. The second manual is for experts using SWIMS to manage water sources data. The manual describes the different functions of the software, data entry, data management, report generation etc. By using SWIMS, government ministries and partners in the water sector in Somalia contribute in building a national database for the water sources in the country.

W 12-Water Sources Inventory for Northern Somalia: SWALIM in collaboration with UNICEF carried out a survey of strategic point water sources in Northern Somalia in 2008. This report describes the methodology, challenges and outcomes of the survey. Over 1,600 sources were visited during the survey and for each source details were recorded on issues such as operational status, management and water quality. The annexes of the report contain 32 tailored district maps showing the location and functional status of the water sources. The Somali Government, donors, UN agencies and non-governmental organizations working in the water sector will find this report a very useful tool for planning interventions. Download file (7.5 MB) 
W 17-Water Sources Inventory for Central - South Somalia: After the successful completion of the northern Somalia strategic point water sources survey that was conducted in 2008, SWALIM in collaboration with UNICEF carried out a survey of the water sources in central - south Somalia. The findings and results of the survey are presented in this report. The total number of sources visited in the central - south regions is 645. Out of this, 125 are boreholes, 400 shallow wells, 17 springs and 103 are communal dams. The total number of strategic sources for the whole country is now 2,254 sources. The information and products generated and that are presented in this report include district maps showing the location, operational status, physical parameters, water quality and management of the source. Additional information on fact sheets for each of region surveyed could be obtained from SWALIM. Due to insecurity in some of the areas, some parts were not covered by the survey - these are mainly the regions of Hiraan, Middle Shabelle, Lower Shabelle and Lower Juba. The Somali Government, donors, UN agencies and non-governmental organizations working in the water sector will find the report a very useful tool for planning their future interventions Download file (3.9 MB)
