It's great your thinking of ways to help the nation, we need more people like you!!! We shouldn't sit idly anymore, we have a new administration in Somalia that is encouraging the youth to participate in nation building. We can't allow these old-ducks from the soviet era handle our affairs, they have miserably failed and it's our generation that needs to bring fresh thinking to our woes!!!First time poster long time lurker
Basically Somalia should make desalination plants which are powered by wind and solar farms puntland, then they should make canals either a major one that runs from zeila to kismayo but I recommend several canals In each coastal city that way no one fights over water rights and to each there own, lastly the Somali faraxs will have to stop chewing khat and blaming 'yahooda iyo galaha' they will have to plant so much trees I want Somalia to look like Cameron Diaz's womanhood that will reduce the temperature and al shabab will stop acting like savages and actually help the country by burying themselves 6 feet under
Secondly tribalism will have to go if I ever a hear another abdi say 'the kafirs ruined our country' I'm gonna apply for Canadian citizenship and live the rest of my life as a lumberjack/hermit
Your idea can be implemented but it needs to address funding requirements. I suggest we create financial institutions first, without a banking sector it will be difficult to develop. People need access to capital and if we don't pool our capital together, we will not be able to loan out or give access to people who want to do business that's why we are dependent on aid.
How you think banks give loans? they source this money from it's customer capital and investors. When you have insurance for example how you think they pay millions of dollars to you when your house burns down? they source the funds from other customers premiums in the insurance pool!!! Where you think your insurance premium goes when you don't access it or need it? it is pooled together to give to someone who does need it!!!
That's why I want to see a true banking sector kick off in Somalia. Right now we have money-transfer companies, that only transfer money, they don't store it other then the little fee they collect which won't be a big enough pool of capital, maybe a few millions. Once we store that capital into accounts, it turns into a pool of capital that the bank can loan out to people. The bank can then lend it out to people who want business loans(like your idea desalination plant and many other ideas from other people)
That's how societies progress, you generate an idea, I generate an Idea, we connect it together and power on forward!!!
