Write a 5 pages paper on methods for water provision in northern mogadishu. In order to supply water to arid and semi-arid areas like northern Mogadishu, there is a need to understand the dynamics of the region and the available water resource base. This requires an understanding of the water needs, the proper expectation, and planning of the precipitation that falls in the rainy period and developing or analysis of the existing water supply infrastructure. This means that actions that are related to water management in northern Mogadishu should be determined by the nature of the prevalent hydroclimate (Hills 25). That said. there needs to an initial sufficient water resource base through maximum exploitation of the available water resources such as capitalizing on the short rainfall and groundwater resources. Additionally, the social impact of the methods should be positive. the costs ought to be minimal and affordable while also protecting the environment.
In most arid areas, there is usually a period of downpour that can sometimes be intense. Though occurring for short periods, the water that can manifest itself in the form of surface runoff can add up to the existing water resource base if well collected and managed. There lies cost-efficient potential to increase the existing water supplies by improving the existing water collection and management strategies (Banerjee &Elvira 17).
Deep in the surface, the northern parts of Mogadishu may contain groundwater. Groundwater can be exploited in a large scale manner and availed to the needy population.
