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
