Rain-water Harvest in Badiet Kleem (Hayf and Hilmahi), Socotra, Yemen
Rain-water Harvest in Badiet Kleem (Hayf and Hilmahi), Socotra, Yemen
Kleem is the upper ground and foot hills north of Hayf and Hilmahi (Badiet Hayf and Hilmai). The area can exceed 10 Sq.km. Communities practice rangeland management and herding livestock where communities live in Hayf and Hilmahi villages on the coatal Nujid plain south of Socotra. There are no permanent villages nor water courses in the higher ground but alternatively there are water in lower wadis that run into the cost. Provision of water to livestock requires driving flocks for several hours to reach water. This said to be a burden on livestock owners and animals due to distance travelling between grazing ground and water courses.
On the other hand communities live in the area during the summer season to work in livestock management and taking advantage of being closer to their animal for food (meat and milk). Women are responsible for bringing water from distance away to their fqmilies.
Building rain-water harvest bodies will solve the problem and bring benefits to animals, people and the environment. Soil and vegetation degradation will be reduced due to avoidance of overgrazing, women labour will be reduced and family welfare is improved.
The project aims are:
- To build 103 rain-water harvest bodies with total water harvest of 2750 cubic meters at each time.
- Provide direct livelihood benefits to 250 families with 701 females and 491 males.
- Increased environmental awareness among 160 men and women in the area.
