    Residents of four villages in Abu Jubaiha in South Kordofan are facing a severe drinking water crisis. People in eastern Sudan’s Sennar and El Gedaref are complaining about thirst as well. Khartoum plans to significantly improve the water supply in Red Sea state On Sunday, a listener told Radio Dabanga that the villages of Gereid, Um Saga, Sefeira, and El Tardiya are suffering from thirst. Sudan, officially the Republic of Sudan but sometimes referred to as North Sudan, sits along the Red Sea south of Egypt and has a population consisting mostly of descendants of migrants from the nearby Arabian Peninsula. Sudan has a total area of 1,, square kilometers (, square miles) and has an estimated population of million, a significant increase from ,

For much of Kordofan Province, surface-water supplies collected and stored in hafirs, fulas, and tebeldi trees are almost completely appropriated for present needs, and water from wells must serve as the base for future economic and cultural development. This report describes the results of a reconnaissance hydrogeologic investigation of the Province and the nature and distribution of the.

Prior to the introduction of UNICEF’s small bore hand pumps, villagers in western Sudan used to store water in the hollowed trunks of giant baobab trees (Adansonia digitata).In many other parts of the country, water is collected and stored in haffirs, a crude form of water harvesting for domestic, pastoralist and animal use in Darfur and Kordofan.

The present study proposes a new approach for indexing heavy metals ions to examine groundwater quality in North Kurdufan Province, Sudan.

The new approach is developed based on the most frequently used methods for indexing heavy metals pollution in water. It is created in order to avoid the weaknesses of the current indexing systems. As per the new indexing approach, heavy metal contamination.

The main objective of the South Kordofan Agricultural Project is to provide a sound institutional framework and, through selected direct interventions, to assist smallholder farmers and livestock owners in Southern Kordofan to improve their standard of.

Ground water is the mosx important mineral in Sudan* About &Orf of the inhabitants of Sudan depend upon ground water for their living most of the year, in the Northern part of the country rain rarely falls and the country is mainly desert, away from the river Nile* the wells are the only source of water*.

The present study assesses groundwater resources in the semiarid central Sudan, where 20 deep productive wells were installed to supply a major city in the region, El Obeid. We make available the scoreboard for soil erosion indicators including SDG Soil erosion indicator, CAP Context indicator.

A recent publication proposes the use of those indicators for agricultural, environmental, climate policies. Sudan is dependent upon groundwater aquifers for its supply of water, both for human consumption and irrigation.

This article deals with the present groundwater resources. The decision on where and how much groundwater to pump depends on the quality of groundwater and the depth from which it was pumped.

The further development of groundwater for agriculture and domestic use is one Cited by: A variety of xenoliths from the lower crust to mantle transition occur in Quaternary mafic intraplate lavas of the Bayuda volcanic field of northern Sudan.

The lower-crust xenoliths include plagioclase- and garnet-bearing mafic granulite. Surface water quality. Data on surface water quality are both scarce and old. Those that exist are mainly on the White and Blue Nile.

Water characteristics are subject to the source and types of soil the water runs through. Water pollution comes from agricultural residues and the sugar industry, although the self-purifying capacity of the natural systems is high.

Water supply in Southern Sudan is faced with numerous challenges. Although the White Nile runs through the country, water is scarce during the dry season in areas that are not located on the river.
