Zakeiya Yusuf : Drought Solutions for Somaliland

My research will focus on countries like Somaliland that do not contribute as much to greenhouse gases but still are affected by it. ​

In Somaliland, the effects of climate change usually come in the form of shortage of rainfall. This causes prolonged draughts such as the 2018 draught that affected over 725,000 people according to the NRC website. Livestock, a major component in Somaliland's economy, is also directly affected by this.

I would like to research more about climate change and the effects it has on countries like Somaliland that do not contribute as much to greenhouse gases but still are affected by it.
