Analyzing the Impact of Inadequate Drainage Systems on Road Infrastructure: A Case Study of Mogadishu, Somalia

Dr. Ali Addow Nur [2]

Abstract: This article delves into the repercussions of the collapsed central system on Mogadishu, Somalia, resulting in an economic, governance, and social development slowdown, particularly affecting road infrastructure and drainage systems. The study investigates the profound consequences of the absence of a functional drainage system on roads, encompassing aspects of transportation, construction, and pavement. Employing a research design comprising surveys and quantitative analysis, the study targets students, business communities, drivers, and engineers in Mogadishu, with a sample size of 80 determined through the Slovenes Formula. The research underscores that functional drainage systems are integral to efficient road networks and recommends urgent governmental intervention for the repair and reactivation of Mogadishus drainage systems to avert social, economic, and environmental predicaments.

Keywords: Road infrastructure, drainage systems, Mogadishu, transportation, economic impact
