Assesment of shallow groundwater storage and recovery


Budunbuto is a village located in the Nugaal Region of Puntland, Somalia. In the past years the population has grown because many internally displaced persons (IDP) have moved to the village.

The Dutch NGO Stichting Kaalo Nederland is working together with Wilde Ganzen and Aqua for All on a project to improve water availability in the village.

Aqua for All has requested SamSamWater to give technical and hydrological advice on the possibility to improve the water situation using rainwater harvesting and shallow groundwater solutions, such as sub-surface dams.
