Somalia

Somalia, officially the Federal Republic of Somalia is a country located in the Horn of Africa. Somalia has an estimated population of around 14.3 million. Around 85% of its residents are ethnic Somalis, who have historically inhabited the northern part of the country. Ethnic minorities are largely concentrated in the southern regions. Somalia has maintained an informal economy, mainly based on livestock, remittances from Somalis working abroad, and telecommunications

 Somalia has one of the world’s lowest enrolment rates for primary school-aged children – only 30% of children are in school and only 40% of these are girls. In many areas, parents are required to pay for their children’s education, and poverty remains the main reason they give for not sending their children to school.

The last three decades of armed conflicts, lack of functioning government, economic collapse, and disintegration of the health system and other public services - together with recurrent droughts and famines – has turned Somalia into one of the world’s most difficult environments for survival. 

Somalia is among the top five countries in the list of 170 least developed nations.  The country has still not been able to develop itself the technological field. The factors contributing to this state of underdevelopment of science and technology are due to the following reasons: Political turmoil, Poverty, Weak educational system and Natural disasters.
