The Somali Media for Environment, Science, Health and Agriculture (SOMESHA) is today announcing the way it needs to produce her achievement because SOMESHA has over 4years by operating in Somalia as non-governmental journalists association.
Somalia development has not been well served by the national media due to the media professionals who are uninformed about national development agendas and the country’s leadership has not factored the role of media in their development programmes as well as the support for media from donors has not been effective.
“SOMESHA obtained a successful outcome within four years and it might not be too far to say that the media in Somalia shares the desire to reflect and contribute to the developmental goals of a fast growing country, as there are key pillars that largely govern the media industry as well as common challenges”said Mr. Daud Abdi Daud, SOMESHA Secretary General
However, The Somali media for Environment, Science, Health and Agriculture (SOMESHA) members and its leadership worked better together to achieve a remarkable activities including, the lobbying for the rights to determine Somalia Exclusive Economic Zone, (Somalia-EEZ), the formation of Somalia Climate Change Network (SCCN) after when the South Central Somalia Non State Actor Forum (SOSCENSA) and SOMESHA organized a consultation meeting with civil society representatives in which the Participants developed a roadmap for achieving sustainable agricultural practices as a way to increase resilience to climate change. And the lobbying for putting an end to “Insult Laws” and Criminal Defamation in Somalia in which leads to arrest SOMESHA Secretary General Mr. Daud Abdi Daud on February 5, 2013.
“I interviewed Ms. Donna Hopkins last year who heads the International Contact Group of Somalia through radio Kulmiye based in Mogadishu and told me that Somalia has no legal Exclusive Economic Zone in its territorial water, that interview attracted Somalia policy makers and caused to get Somalia-EEZ regulation by the Federal Government of Somalia and signed by the president H.E. Hassan Sheikh Mohamud on June 30, 2014. ‘So that I’ have the right to say SOMESHA is a key role model for Somalia peace and development and will be a change agent to help both the journalists who produce the news and citizens who consume it” Mr. Daud added
The Somali Media for Environment, Science, Health and Agriculture (SOMESHA) will launch its next-year strategy for 2015-2016. It aims to consolidate the work done over the past four years, as well as define the organization’s future projects. The strategy launch will take place at the South Central Somalia Non State Actor Forum (SOSCENSA) meeting hall late earlier on January, 2015.
