LOCAL WATER SECURITY IN GAMBIA – PROJECT AREA

Objective
Provide information and services to improve the water security of people and villages in The Gambia.

Summary
Waters supplies in the Gambia are problematic with the long dry season and sandy soils making it difficult to dig dams for water storage. However, there is easy access to groundwater and this is the preferred option.
This project aims to provide information about the options for accessing and storing water and provide services for harvesting, storing and treating water at a local level.

Methods

  • Research information that will be helpful for harvesting, storing and treating water in The Gambia. You can find it in the Information – Local Water security in Gambia section.
  • Provide Water harvesting, storing and treating services such as bore drilling, solar pump installations, hand pump installations, well digging, water treatment equipment, tank placing and more. You can see a list of our current Water services HERE.
