Before the military government collapsed and since independence in 1960 further plantings have taken place in the Somali Democratic Republic, although it was not until the late seventies that these became widespread. More recently the number of Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) undertaking forestry-related work has increased, and by mid-1986 there were over 20 projects (or sub-projects) planting trees.pres-dhir-2

It has been apparent for some time that there is a lack of coordination between these projects, and that information gleaned by one project is not readily available to another. Thus each project has in effect started afresh and learnt from experience the best species to sow, the most appropriate nursery methods and suitable out-planting techniques. Though plantings were confined to relatively small numbers of trees on private farms. Prior to these dates plantings had taken place under the guidance of veterinary officers, agricultural advisers or as private ventures.
