More info

Geographic conditions make life difficult in the republic of Djibouti. The desert climate, with its extremely erratic rainfall, has caused many droughts, including the severe one of 1980, which killed almost all the country’s livestock. The droughts are the reason for the sparse vegetation, consisting of shrubs and prickly bushes, which can barely feed the herds of sheep, camels, and goats. Droughts are on the increase: over the last 30 years, rainfall has dropped by an average of 6 to 15 percent. This has led to a progressive decline in the nomadic lifestyle of the almost 80,000 shepherds belonging to Djibouti’s two main ethnic groups: the Afars (37 percent of the population) and the Issa-Somali (50 percent). The end of colonialism and the decline of traditional trade routes with the Orient have hit Djibouti hard. They have been even more damaging to Aden, on the opposite shore of the Red Sea, which was an essential port of call for British ships en route to the Indies.
