Transcript: Somalia is one of the poorest countries in the world, ranking 161st out of 163 countries on the United Nations’ Human Development Index in 2001. Somalia did not appear on the 2006 index for lack of data. About 40 percent of Somalis live in extreme poverty on less than $1 a day. Type of government: Transitional Federal Government (TFG) Who runs the country: the president is Abdulkassim Salat Hassan and Hassan Abshir Farah as prime minister Steps taken towards democracy: the country is currently under no specific gov. they have clans fighting for power. Somalia's Flag The long-standing absence of authority in the country has led to Somali pirates becoming a major threat to international shipping in the area, and has prompted Nato to take the lead in an anti-piracy operation. Education: Literacy--total population that can read and write, 37.8%: male 49.7%; female 25.8%. A small minority of Christians did live in Somalia until the late 20th century, when Christian schools were shut down and most of the Christians left the country. Somalia's location The role of religious functionaries began to shrink in the 1950s and 1960s as some of their legal and educational powers and responsibilities were transferred to secular authorities. The position of religious leaders changed substantially after the 1969 revolution and the introduction of scientific socialism. Siad Barre insisted that his version of socialism was compatible with Quranic principles, and he condemned atheism. Religious leaders, however, were warned not to meddle in politics. Somalia Religion active in Somalia- Muslim Somalia's relationship with the United States is not very good. Somalia had sided with the Soviet Union causing conflict with the U.S. Ethnic group- Somali, with a small non-Somali minority (mostly Bantu and Arabs). Issues- famine; use of contaminated water contributes to human health problems; deforestation; overgrazing; soil erosion; desertificationSomalia is a land broken by famine, disease and war. The United States is backing Ethiopian incursions into Somalia, and American warplanes have raided Somalia three times in 2007 alone, allegedly in attempts to keep al-Qaeda militants from taking hold Somalia’s military of 10 divisions broke up after the 1991 overthrow of President Siad Barre and hasn’t been reconstituted since.

Relationship with the U.S Somalia has two rainy seasons: the Gu (April to June) and the Dayr (October to November). Droughts usually occur every two to three years in the Dayr and every eight to ten years in both the Dayr and the Gu. The coastal region in the south around Mogadishu and Kismaayo has an additional rainy season, the Xagaaye (July to August), in which isolated rain showers prevail. The Climate

Transcript: Somalia Who is fighting? Timeframe Pirates The Somali pirates are people that attack using force of guns . They steal and take hostages in the process. They moslty attack at night in the Gulf of Aden. But, Why? Pirates mostly attack ships with precious goods. Then insurance companies pay big bucks to get the goods back. In turn the pirates make tons of money. Becoming a Pirate Poor fisherman turn into pirates to get better lives and to help out their families. Puntland The pirates kidnap all of the shipmates that they take over. Then, they have to feed and house them, which helps to stabalize the economy in Puntland. Puntland is where they keep all of the shipmates they kidnap, and where the pirates live. Some of the money that they get from the insurance companies helps pay for food and othe necessities on Puntland. Our Opinions Juniper- I believe that if Somalia outlawed the insurance companies from paying the pirates back, they would eventually lose interest and stop the raids. The authorities could also raid Puntland & fight back. THE END! Guns Instead of swords like pirates on TV, they have guns. They have a special type of gun called an RPG. they use the guns to overpower the crews of boats they are taking over. Somali pirates and innocent civilians in boats These conflicts have been taking place since 2008 and are still going on today.

Transcript: Postcard from Hell Somalia has topped the Failed States Index for the last three years — a testament not only to the depth of the country’s long-running political and humanitarian disaster, but also, to the international community’s inability to find an answer. After two decades of chaos, the country is today largely under the control of Islamist militant groups, the most notorious and powerful of which is al-Shabab. A second faction, Hizbul Islam, rivals the former in brutality — it recently executed two Somalis for the crime of watching the World Cup. Off the coast, pirates such as the men pictured here torment passing ships, often holding them hostage for a high price. In 2009, Somali pirates earned an estimated $89 million in ransom payments. Somalia Somalia is a country plagued by droughts, starvation, corruption and violence. It bears the scars of decades of fighting, and continues to be a major concern to the UN. With Somalia continuously placing in the Failed States Index, this presentation will focus on some key issues that have been casting a shadow over this country. Specifically on the notorious piracy continuing on the east coast of the African continent. Somalia's Profile where is somalia? In the continent of Africa... Located on the east coast of Africa. Somalia borders Kenya, Ethiopia and the Indian Ocean. The coastal features of the country, give the region the name "The Horn of Africa". The capital city of the country is Mogadishu, which is on the coastline. main languages? - Somali - Arabic and these are considered their 2nd languages - English - Italian Islam 99.9% Muslim The constitution of Somalia defines Islam as the religion of the Somali Republic, and Islamic sharia as the basic source for national legislation. Islam entered the region very early on, as a group of persecuted Muslims had, at Prophet Muhammad's urging, sought refuge across the Red Sea in the Horn of Africa. Islam may thus have been introduced into Somalia well before the faith even took root in its place of origin. Christianity is a minority religion in Somalia, with no more than 1,000 practitioners (about 0.01% of the population). Population The CIA World Factbook estimated the population in 2000 as 7,253,137. All such estimates are derived by extrapolating from official censuses taken in 1975 and 1986 by the Somali government. In 2011 the population is to be said 9.5 million (UN, 2011). Such estimates are complicated by the large number of nomads and by refugee movements in a country that has been racked by war and famine for a decade. Nearly 50 percent of the population are nomadic, moving mainly in the central and northern areas, where drought is an ever-present threat. About 28 percent of the population are settled farmers, mostly in the southern areas between the Jubba and Shabeelle rivers. The population profile was estimated in 2000 as 44 percent in the 0-14 years age group, 53 percent between 15 and 64 years, and 3 percent in the 65 years and over age group. HDI English: The United Nations Human Development Index (HDI) rankings for 2011. - (dark blue) Very High - (medium blue) High - (light blue) Medium - (almost white) Low - (dark grey) Data unavailable Somalia Somalia doesn't have any recent HDI rankings because of the lack of government control and safety, however it is considered to be one of the worst countries that have the lowest rankings. Health Infant mortality rate—109.19/1,000 live births Average life expectancy at birth for entire population: 50.4 yrs. According to a 2005 World Health Organization estimate, about 97.9% of Somalia's women and girls have undergone female circumcision,a pre-marital custom mainly endemic to Northeast Africa. Encouraged by women in the community, it is primarily intended to deter promiscuity and to offer protection from assault. AIDs in Somalia Somalia has one of the lowest HIV infection rates on the continent. This is attributed to the Muslim nature of Somali society and adherence of Somalis to Islamic morals. While the estimated HIV prevalence rate in Somalia in 1987 was 1% of adults, a more recent estimate from 2007 now places it at only 0.5% of the nation's adult population despite the ongoing civil strife.
