Strengthening the collaboration with Somalia Water and Land Information Management (SWALIM).







During the 3rd week of January Ruden paid a visit to Nairobi in Kenya. Here, Ruden met with SWALIM (Somalia Water and Land Information Management) to discuss the Deep groundwater project in Somalia, share information and decide on collaboration between the two parties on the project. Ruden also visited the Norwegian Embassy to discuss the project progress.

Collaboration with SWALIM

Most time of the visit was spent at the offices of SWALIM. A couple of days to discuss the way to collaborate on this ambitious project, and to share as much data as possible. SWALIM has been present in Somalia for a long time, and are the best source for information and data on water in this region.
