"Bosasso, Puntland, Somalia, 18 September 2017 – A partnership between UNICEF, the Puntland authorities, and partners is bringing piped water to thousands of people in the town of Bosasso for the first time.

Currently much of the population in Bosasso – a major seaport and a fast-growing city in northeastern Bari region of Puntland State - gets their water from hand-dug shallow wells. The water is often contaminated and can lead to deadly waterborne diseases such as cholera. Those who can afford, buy better quality water from private sellers at high prices. Only 40 per cent of the population are connected to the city’s pipeline, which was built nearly 20 years ago.

Under a public private partnership, UNICEF; the Puntland Authority for Water, Energy and Natural Resources; and Golden Utilities Management Company (GUMCO) rehabilitated the town’s water tank and laid more than 10,000 metres of pipeline to overhaul the deteriorating water system in Bosasso. The newly-rehabilitated water system has the capacity to connect the entire population of Bosasso to safe water. By the end of 2017, some 9,000 residents will be connected under the first phase of the project.

The partners are also taking the project into camps for internally displaced people. Some 1200 people in Bari Bosasso camp have already been connected and are now receiving piped water, thanks to the pro bono work done by GUMCO.

“This is a great step forward in ensuring as many people as possible have access to safe water, especially now with the crisis caused by the drought,” said UNICEF Somalia Representative Steven Lauwerier. “Water is a basic right, all children and their families should have easy access to it. We will continue to work through the Public private partnership model to ensure this basic right is met for every child, household in Bosasso and elsewhere in Somalia.”

About UNICEF UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere."

We are currently experiening financial troubles with the economy, Gaas's admin has been great so far but theres also many challenges and problems to solve.
Boowe it's 2017 and the elections is in 2019 fadlan forget about that for now this thread is about Puntland and it's currently leader is Abdiweli gaas
 
Wallahi bosaso will grow very fast , inshallah we will surpass even Hargeisa in numbers.Puntland should move capital to bosaso , its our economic hub.
 
:mjlol: Western Hargeisa alone is more populated than bosaso and garowe put together, but its good that you aspire to be like Hargeisa
Bosaso is growing very fast, Hargeisa is land locked and will be overtaken in population by port cities.Berbera should rapidly increase soon as well.
 
@Mokillem unfortunately Bosaso doesn't have the potential to grow to a mega city like Mogadishu or Hargeisa because of its location.
It is surrounded by big mountains on all sides.
