Somali journalists frequently face political pressure and corruption attempts. Many media are directly owned by political leaders and business groups but their reporting for science topics is very low and SOMESHA needs to expand her efforts on training the journalists and rewarding for those reporting the science topics including health, environment, climate change, agriculture and science and technology innovations.
Since the Somali Media for Environment, Science, Health and Agriculture (SOMESHA) Green Journalism Awards inception in 2015, it was honored professional journalists for distinguished reporting on the sciences topics and civic issues.
