Somalia suffered the most deaths due to extreme weather events and famine over the last three decades – says a state-wise analysis by SOMESHA in its State of Somalia’s Environment 2022: In feature Report in which was released recently by Rev. Daud Abdi Daud to mark the approaching World Environment Day on 2022.
Commenting on what the report is trying to do, Rev. Daud Abdi Daud “Jourd”, managing editor and secretary general of SOMESHA, says: “This report is going to bring to you the state of Somalia’s environment, quantified. This year marks malicious death displacements both for climate change dillemas including famine and droughts and terrorism attacks. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the Stockholm conference, the UN’s first meeting on human environment. This report tries to do justice to both: by making an assessment of whether the promised ‘New India’ will come to pass (in the case of the former). And by documenting and analyzing (in the case of the latter) how the planet’s environment has been in the last 50 years.”
“Christianity is a minority religion in Somalia, with no more than 1,000 practitioners (about 0.01% of the population). The renewal draughts and famine will not be stopped and it can’t be challenged to fix without religious plurality so we have to act to reach-out the whole Somalis and tell about the pluralism in faith importance” he added
On the humanitarian side, in across Somalia, the acute food insecurity in has drastically worsened since the beginning of 2022, with an estimated 4.8 million people experiencing Crisis or worse (IPC Phase 3 or higher) conditions (or 31% of the total population).
SOCDEN is the lead agency responsible for identifying and reporting on faith pluralism importance and Interfaith prayers issues in across Somalia and will start soon a prayers for unity and social integration.
