    Somaliland president launches new annual reforestation day.

    [​IMG]

    "The inaugural Somaliland National Tree Day, the 4 million residents of Somaliland were encouraged to plant 100,000 trees, stop cutting trees down and discuss environment challenges in an effort to create awareness on the best ways to fight the severe long-lasting drought that has devastated the region.

    Additionally, clearing of vegetation, overgrazing, soil erosion, deforestation and general depletion of natural resources have led to biodiversity loss."

    Livestock kills the trees over there. They eat the young seedlings so trees have no chance to mature. Only human intervention and active planning can stop the desertification.

    Somaliland are starting to teach their nomads to convert from nomadism into agro-pastoralism. At the same time, Somaliland are starting to plant trees and cheap grasses from Europe which is good for their livestock and it doesn't need that much water so overall Somaliland is trying their best to combat drought and fix the environment.

    Thank god we are finally taking the environment seriously. I will write more emails to the somali government officials so that they start taking infrastructure seriously too. Plus trees will help to collect more rain and to cool down the temperatures. Now lets hope puntland starts fighting their desert and somalia can be green again!!

    Somalia doesn't even have deserts. It's mainly arid with some fertile lands and arid means dry soil with lack of water and nutrients.

    The areas that are arid have a degraded soil issue which can easily be fixed with investing more into agriculture and teaching the nomads to practice agro-pastoralism and also, Somalis got to stop cutting down the trees as trees help with the water supply by creating rain clouds and keeps the soil moistured and fertile.

    Southern Somalia and Northwestern Somalia has fertile lands and rich resources, while Central Somalia and Neartheastern Somalia seems fucked.

    Anyways, we can increase from 15% to 100% fertile lands if we promote agriculture and convert our Somali nomads into agro-pastoralism. Also, we just need to plant a lot of trees and cheap European style grass and hopefully, our lands will become arable. Also, we need to learn how to use, stop and save our fresh water in a certain location from rainwater, rivers, seasonal valleys, underground water, mountain waters and wells. If Somalia economy was huge, all of this would be easy.

    A combination of farming and nomadism. So basically, they are nomads with livestock but they will plant grass and grains in a certain area for seasonal reasons then go to the next location where they will do the same and each season they move forward and back to location A to location B or location C while keeping the environment green and fertile.

    The 100 thousand tree planting has already began as the local residents are helping to plant trees in Somaliland.

    @DR OSMAN Looks like it's a legit news as Somaliland began the project and the president of Somaliland also joined the tree planting movement. :lolbron:
