Starting from the way the state of Somalia environmental conservation is, the Secretary General of the Somali Media for Environment, Science, Health and Agriculture (SOMESHA) Mr. Daud Abdi Daud sheds light on and challenged the way the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) including the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP-Somalia Office) works in Somalia during a Clean Energy Forum in Mogadishu, Somalia on March 26, 2015 and the attempt by FAO to quote Somali media articles regarding the food security and the agriculture as well while they don’t want to help improve the quality of youth journalism in the country.
The last five (5) years SOMESHA was the single representative voice of these specialized journalists who keen on to report about the environment and the agriculture development as well as science and technology innovations in Somalia at large.
“Apart from the journalists awareness into the nature reporting SOMESHA paved the way in generally Somalia youth and the civil society awakening by reporting and discussing the environment and the climate change as well as the food security issues.However we kindly requesting the UN-agencies especially the United Nations Development, Programme (UNDP)-Somalia Office and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to come up a media development plan”. Mr. Daud added
The “Clean Energy Forum” was an initiative by the Somali Environmental and Rural Development Agency (SERDA) in order to bring together all those who are involved in the fields of environmental protection and the provision of clean energy. Similarly with SOMESHA, SERDA believes that a majority of the population in Mogadishu and the rest of the country are not aware of clean energy and its benefits.
Government officials, environmental experts and activists were invited by means of exchange of ideas, opinions, and skills.
The Somali Media for Environment, Science, Health and Agriculture (SOMESHA) believes that Somalia peace recovery and its environmental conservation can come very smoothly if the majority UN-agencies, especially UNDP, UNEP, FAO and UNESCO start to open a new plan to develop and help improve the quality journalism in Somalia.
