Is it possible to expand the Jubba and Shabelle rivers? and make the soil fertile in Somaliweyn. Also is it possible to create an artificial river in northern Somalia (Puntland)? Last thing can we create a sewage system to stop the flooding in Somalia and Somaliland?
I don't want opinions, I want answers.

The rivers arent that huge to be expanded. If you try to do that it might cause water drop downstream and it will affect the forests in Jl and the Shabelle regions
How do we fix it nigga, we need solutions!!!!!!

I think it's definitely achievable but we we're struggling to survive so we need to do baby steps. Many countries use sand dams which we should begin with since we're not able to implement large scale projects:


I saw a video recently of a town in India that transformed their seasonal river into a permanent one but I think it's been deleted.

I always hear niggas raving about this. Is it even possible? Have there been feasibility studies? Is there a example of someone doing something similar somewhere else?
:biixithinking:
I think massive tree plantation turns the area humid which means more rains which means permanent rivers. However we gotta understand this is possible if the climate allows it, like if the area was green before and had rivers but due to human activities they disappeared. You cant just plant trees in deserts and expect rivers to start flowing

Man made rivers can be built

Yeah they can be but in our case where will the water come from?

Libya did it by drilling large aquifers, it was a great project. Somalis have been diggin wells for centuries, the aquifers must be depleted or close to being depleted

What I'm about to say are my assumptions read with your own risk.
:dead1:

I thought sea water that evaporates in the red sea forms clouds and moves south. There above cal madow the cold clouds meet hot air thus pushing the clouds up. And in so it's starts raining.(something about the clouds becoming lighter trying to go up by releasing water vapor).

Planting trees is a great way to lock rainwater in the ground and preventing soil degregation. It will help make seasonal rivers stay longer and help the area.

On a lose note planting trees is hard back home. You have to close of entire regions from herders because their life stock will eat everything. This will be hard in sool and sanaag because they have large herder communities who claim large grazing lands.

The brown in the river is top soil that has been eroded. This happens when land stays dry for the majority of the year and it starts to rain very Har for a short amount of time.

Somalia has pastoralists turning vast lands into deserts and drying up wells. Another issue along with the lack of water planning is over 80% of the population cutting trees for firewood so this all needs to be resolved first.

We can even use desalination and fill up the new rivers.

You are not wrong in that that is how it generally works but the winds come from the Arabian desert i.e hot and dry and the Red Sea is too small for the winds to pick up moisture so you end up with winds that bring no rains at all unlike the ones that come from Indian ocean which carries a lot of moisture and dumps a lot of rains into the east african coast

Desalination isn't realistic sxb. Only rich countries (Israel) or countries who have MASSIVE oil deposits (Libya) do it because it's very expensive/ unsustainable .
