Abstract: An important centre of learning for Somaliland, over the last century Borama has grown to around 10,000 settled households today. Faced with an uncertain operating environment, keeping pace with demand for improved water services has presented considerable challenges to Borama community and international partners over recent years. Drawing evidence from secondary sources and a rapid purposive research exercise, the development trend to the current status of Borama’s water supply is described, in terms of water resources, water sources, supply engineering and management of service delivery. Insight into recent efforts to sustainably manage ground-water resources are presented, as are encouraging results in service development and delivery by SHABA water utility, operating through a pilot PPP contract. Based on results and an assessment of constraints and opportunities identified by the authors, discussion and recommendations are offered.
