General Survey of the Somaliland Protectorate, 1944-1950
SWALIM reference library
An attempt has been made in this Report to describe the general geography of the Somaliland Protectorate from existing know1edge and from the results of a seven-year General Survey(1944-1950). Special attention has been paid to those aspects of geography that had not previously been sufficiently studied by research workers in the Protectorate (e.g. Time, Topography, Meteorology, General Geology, and the Ecology of nomadic stock-herding tribesmen). It is hoped that the factual material contained in the document will be of value for reference purposes to all interested in the Protectorate, of use in planning positive development and in preventing expenditure on uneconomic developmental schemes.
