The Somaliland Development Fund – Phase 2 (SDF2) covers the period 2018 – 2023. SDF2 is conceived as an inclusive economic development programme. It supports the GoSL in delivering infrastructure that is relevant for inclusive economic development. It focuses on sustainable investments that spur job creation and fast growth, while at the same time laying the foundation for long-term resilience and development, leading to a more stable and peaceful Somaliland. SDF2’s support is fully aligned with government priorities as defined in the National Development Plan 2 (NDP2) 2017-2021 and reflect the priorities set out in Somaliland Vision 2030.
The Ministry of Water Resources Development (MoWRD) has developed a Project Concept Note. The proposed project shall have the following 5 outputs namely: 1) Capacity Development of MoWRD; 2) Drilling of a borehole and water distribution system in Widh Widh village; 3) Drilling of a borehole and water distribution system in Dharkayn Geeyo village; 4) Drilling of a borehole and water distribution system in Goljanno village; and 5) dam design/construction and water distribution system in Farawayne town/village. The combined beneficiaries of the above mentioned 4 water distribution systems is around 23,000 people. Currently, all these villages/people are suffering from lack of water and they have to travel several kilometres to get water. This concept note has been approved by the SDF2 Joint Steering Committee (JSC).
The SDF Secretariat is therefore seeking the services of a Senior Water Short-Term Expert (STE) to support the MoWRD in conducting the necessary preliminary consultations, assessments and development of a full proejct proposal.
