Project Badweyn is a tool for understanding connections between Somali coastal activities and resources. Visualizing these connections informs strategies to build economically and ecologically sustainable communities, while avoiding future conflicts.
Somali waters (badweyn in Somali) are bustling with marine activities ranging from fishing to shipping. Under the water, vibrant ecosystems support the activities above. Effective governance of these activities, marine spaces, and resources reduces the risks of conflicts, overfishing, and economic insecurity.
