January 2008 - The Government of Djibouti received a €1.9 million grant to pilot innovative run-off water harvesting technologies for drinking water, irrigation and livestock uses in two rural districts of Digri and Obock. The project is expected to improved access to water for multi-purpose uses by the rural nomad populations in the project zone. It will also result in improved knowledge of the hydro-geologic conditions in the project area and increased investments through scaling-up of the new technologies in water harvesting at the country level.
