Abstract
The dataset contains the most common water source types in Somalia classified into five categories namely: boreholes, shallow wells, dams, springs and berkads. Other source types which do not fit in any of these five categories are classified as “Other” The data is periodically updated from field surveys carried out by FAO/SWALIM through government and NGO partners, or received from WASH Cluster partners.Modern technology has been adopted for field data collection, using mobile phones, building on the conventional paper based questionnaire first developed and adopted by WASH partners in Somalia back in 2006

Data Quality
Water Sources information get outdated at a fast rate given the temporary nature of most of the source types.Since the updating is not very frequent due to the costs involved, caution should be observed while using this dataset. A field verification is necessary if the data is being relied on for a high precision large scale Project.
