SamSamWater maakt informatie over water en sanitatie beschikbaar en toegankelijk voor iedereen.

Hierom hebben we een database opgezet, die via deze pagina geraadpleegd kan worden. De database bevat allerlei informatie, bijvoorbeeld 'best practices' (bewezen technieken), kaarten, geo-informatie en achtergrondinformatie. De informatie is afkomstig van verschillende bronnen, waaronder onderzoeksinstituten, bedrijven, organisaties en overheidsinstellingen.

Als u informatie heeft die wij in onze database kunnen opnemen, of als u opmerkingen of vragen heeft, dan horen wij dit graag!

N.B. De documenten en beschrijvingen op deze pagina zijn vooralsnog alleen beschikbaar in het Engels. Als u behoefte heeft aan een Nederlandse vertaling dan kunt u rechtsboven op deze pagina op "Overige talen" klikken. Vervolgens kunt u "Nederlands" selecteren in het pull down menu, waarna deze pagina via een automatische vertaling naar het Nederlands vertaald zal worden.

Sand Dams: a Practical Guide

Simon Maddrell and Ian Neal, Excellent Development (2012)

This manual describes the process of siting, design, construction and management of sand dams. It is aimed at technical and programme management staff working in arid and semi-arid lands who are interested in trialling the application of sand dams in new areas. The manual draws upon the experience of constructing sand dams in Kenya, where the majority of the world’s sand dams are located. Its primary purpose is to capture this experience. (source)

Artificial groundwater recharge for water supply of medium-size communities in developing countries

E.H. Hofkes and J.T. Visscher, International Reference Centre for Community Water Supply and Sanitation The Hague, The Netherlands (1986)

This document integrates material selected from many sources, both published and unpublished. The focus is on potential application of artificial groundwater recharge for water supply of medium-size communities.
The purpose of this document is to provide planners and engineers with practical information to assess the potential for application of artificial groundwater recharge schemes in rural water supply programmes or projects. (source)

Hydrology of Sand Storage Dams - A case study in the Kiindu catchment, Kitui District, Kenya

Lucas Borst, Sander de Haas, VU (2006)

This report reflects the results of a research project concerning the hydrology around sand storage dams. The Kitui district is one of the arid and semi-arid lands of Kenya. For (drinking)water most people heavily rely on water supply from the riverbeds of ephemeral rivers. SASOL is a local NGO which builds so called sand storage dams in ephemeral rivers to increase the water availability during the dry season. Sand storage dams are small (generally a few meters high) dams built in the riverbed behind which sand accumulates, enlarging the natural aquifer. The groundwater in the riverbed is obstructed by the dam and retained between the pores in the sand, making it available for people and animals during the dry season. (source)

Rainwater harvesting for natural resources management; A planning guide for Tanzania

Nuhu Hatibu, Henry F. Mahoo, Sida's Regional Land Management Unit (2000)

A planning handbook that provides planners with practical tips on how rainwater harvesting can form an integrated part of district development efforts. The book also gives practical guidelines in the planning steps required to incorporate rainwater harvesting in development plans, and shows how to implement them in the farmers’ context. (source)

Smart Water Harvesting Solutions

NWP, NWP (2007)

This booklet on Smart Water Harvesting describes a number of creative solutions in situations where ‘there seems to be no water’. It shows practical efforts to ‘create water’, especially in drought prone areas. It does not limit itself to the act of harvesting, but includes ‘capturing’ water during periods of rain, so that it is available for periods of drought. Many of the technologies highlighted in this booklet are traditional, but neglected in the modern world, as people try to become less dependent on the wiles of nature. There is an increasing awareness that rather than fighting against nature, people should co-operate with it. That is what water harvesting tries to do. Like its equivalents on Smart Water and Smart Sanitation, this book gives examples that have proven to be effective and affordable. The book is an effective source of inspiration for local communities, civil engineers, NGOs, research institutes, donors and governments. (source)

Water from sand rivers; A manual on site survey, design, construction and maintenance of seven types of water structures in riverbeds

Erik Nissen-Petersen, Sida's Regional Land Management Unit (2000)

Sand rivers, also called dry riverbeds, transport rainwater run-off from highlands to the sea through the most dry parts of this planet where water is very scarce. Although flood water may be drawn from the sand in some riverbeds for a short period of time after floods, the big majority of sand rivers are dry throughout the years. This book explains in simple terms how dry riverbeds can be changed into water sources for long periods after floods - and in some cases throughout the years. The usual problems of contamination and evaporation in hot climates are almost eliminated due the water being trapped and stored underground between the sand particles of riverbeds. This book is based on the author’s practical experience on developing affordable water supply systems in some of the driest parts of Africa and Asia over the last 25 years. (source)
