The proposed BARWAAQO project will scale up the investments under Biyoole. The project will increase activities in Puntland, Galmudug, and SouthWest States. In addition, it will expand to two additional FMSs – Hirshabelle and Jubaland – where it will focus on the drylands (away from the floodplains of the Shabelle and the Juba rivers). This project would duplicate the original Biyoole project in terms of water point development and livelihood support in the surrounding area, while also including environmental services in catchment areas upstream from water points, such as adaptation to climate change vulnerabilities and climate mitigation efforts. Furthermore, the project will support the enhancement of natural resource management upstream of the water point, including water, land, forests, and rangelands, in order to increase the long-term viability of investments.
The proposed Project Development Objective (PDO) is to develop water, agriculture, and environmental services among agro-pastoralist communities in Somalia’s drylands. The achievement of the PDO will be measured by the following outcome-level indicators:
- People provided with access to improved water sources.
- People provided with access to improved water sources – female.
- Farmers/clients adopting improved technology.
- Farmers/clients adopting improved technology – female.
- Land area under sustainable landscape management practices.
