Somaliland National Development Plan ''2012-2016, and The National Vision by 2030'' Released

- S/ land National Vision 2030/ S.Land development plan 2012-16.
''Read them all below''

The Ministery of Planning and Development  recently released two documents which came to our attention.  These are the first comprehensive plans which have been released under the guise of the Silanyo administration. On a first read they are quite good. But plans are quite easy to assemble. You grab a bunch of donor-friendly buzzwords and you compile them into a cohesive couple of paragraphs. The hard work comes in implementing the plans.

 Our thoughts are with the Government of Somaliland, and indeed we fully support their efforts to continue to build and reform Somaliland. Personally I was surprised that these were assembled in English rather than in Somali. 

We at Watershed feel that it is not only the duty of the donors, international community, and Government of Somaliland to try to achieve wise and thoughtful (if a tad bit boilerplate) objectives stated in these two documents, we feel it is the duty of all Somalilanders, diaspora, and businesses to lend their hands in a positive way towards achieving these goals not only for their own self interests but for the interests of the entire country.

In America we say that a rising tide lifts all boats which means that when the sea is rising it doesn’t matter if you are rich and can afford a brand new very powerful boat or if you are poor and if you can only afford a small dinghy, the sea will lift you up no matter. And this is how development is, so we implore and beseech all to think about, talk about, and (most importantly) act upon the objectives outlined in these two documents;
