Abstract
At the request of the Land and Farm Management Division of the Ministry of Agriculture, a site evaluation of the soil and water conditions of the Daua valley in Mandera District was carried out, from 6th to 13th of April 1973. Special attention was to be given to an area just downstream of Mandera town, an area halfway between Mandera and Ramu (Hareri), and one at Ramu town of beyond (Dimtu). These areas are under consideration for irrigated agriculture under the Ministry’s programme of development of minor irrigation schemes. More specifically, they should serve for the settling of the groups of destitute in the area, now living largely in famine relief camps. The data gathered should help the Ministry of Agriculture to assess preliminarily the feasibility of the proposed schemes.
