Our Journey

Shabelle River basin inside Somalia consists of an area of 307,000 sq. km with a total length of 11,00 km- despite the Shabelle river being Somalia breadbasket, it faces several challenges stemming from flooding to extreme water shortages due to a combination of upstream damming, climate change, and lack water resources management. This has resulted in the birth of the Shabelle River Initiative ( SRI) founded by:

Hussein Amiin

Hussein Amiin is a professional water resources engineer both in the public and private sector with over 15 years of experience in Hydrologic and Hydraulic Analysis and Modeling, and

Guled Ahmed

Guled Ahmed (Wiliq) has over 18 years of professional engineering in water infrastructure development, and water transboundary issues in Asia and Africa.
