URBAN HOUSING

In the long term, repeated movements of large-scale population favored the growth of urban centers. It also modifies the spatial organization of the network, although the impact on the decline or disappearance of certain cities may be evaluated with a durable cessation of conflict. Urban dynamics will depend largely on the political developments in Somalia. The establishment of a federal system in 2011 (at the end of the transitional federal government) can only enhance the growth of intermediate cities today. In this respect, the slow building of the urban network is only a hypothesis based on statistics that do not come from population counts, but statements from official sources that probably tend to overestimate the number of cities promoted as self-proclaimed capitals. The crossing of the statistical sources with satellite images has a check on the existence of settlements in some cases offer a reassessment of their size, and especially to identify fifteen towns emerging in 2020.
