Djibouti Agriculture and Fishing Overview


Agriculture and fishing

Farming conditions are poor in the hot and rainy desert of Djibouti. In the countryside, most residents are still livestock nomads, who keep goats, sheep and camels. In good years it rains at most 200 mm and all cultivation is dependent on irrigation. The country can only produce 3 percent of the food the population needs. The most common crops are vegetables and dates.

Although agriculture contributes less than 3 percent of GDP, the United Nations Agricultural Agency (FAO) estimates that more than 70 percent of the labor force is found in agriculture, livestock or fisheries. This is because livestock breeding is extensive. With US support, Djibouti has tried to increase livestock exports to Middle Eastern countries.

Recurrent and prolonged drought is a difficult problem for livestock keepers, and more and more of them are looking for cities in search of work.

The Djibouti only eat over three kilos of fish per person per year. The World Bank estimates that the country could catch more fish multiple times than is done. Efforts are underway to develop fishing with foreign aid and create a domestic industry that can take care of the fish.

November

New election system should favor small parties

The National Assembly adopts a proposal to change the electoral system so that 13 seats are distributed proportionally between the parties and that 52 seats are elected after elections in one-man constituencies, where all seats in one constituency go to the winner. Previously, all 65 seats have been appointed in one-man election circles, which favors large parties rather than small ones.
