Somalia Conference in Turkey

Representatives from 54 countries gathered in Istanbul at the beginning of the month to discuss the situation in Somalia and think of ways forward for the country. The two-day conference - which follows the London neocolonial meeting in February - kicked off with discussions among senior officials, experts and businessmen on four key issues: water, energy, roads and sustainability. Abdi Dirshe was a delegate at the Civil Society gathering in Istanbul, a community and civil society initiative that aimed at evaluating and monitoring the Istanbul meeting. Abdi is a political analyst and the current President of the Somali Canadian Diaspora Alliance.
