Somalia Deep-Groundwater project & The role of the Somali Diaspora.
Somalia has seen several droughts in the last decade. Rainfall is not a reliable source of water anymore and other resources must be found in order to mitigate the crises. Somali Norwegian Strategic Partners( SNSP) in collaboration with Ruden AS would like to invite you to a seminar informing about the project to search for deep groundwater in Somalia.
Deep groundwater can travel from far away places underneath the surface of the earth and can be thousands of years old. In 2007, Fridtjov Ruden, the founder of Ruden As, found fresh water more than half a kilometer deep in Tanzania, which had the capacity to serve 2 million people. Ruden AS is now looking for water in Somalia, and we would like to inform you about the operating framework and the timeline of the project. The project will need the engagement of members of Somali diaspora in the crucial next stages of the project.
Somalia Deep-Groundwater project is funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (UD), and is done in collaboration with the Government of Somalia, and Somalia Water and Land Information Management, which is part of United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organization
