Working in Djibouti

Djibouti is small African country in the North Eastern part of Africa. Unemployment is high in Djibouti and individuals interested in working there must be able to exploit strategic strengths or weaknesses of the Country. For example, due to widespread conflict in neighbouring states during the 80’s and 90’s Djibouti is today home to a number of refugees.

For the above reason individuals working with UN agencies can use intra organizational transfer to get into the country for work. It has been mentioned in UNHCR reports as well that aridity and poor climate does not allow refugees participate in agriculture and self-reliance options need to be introduced. Organizations or individuals with suitable proposals are likely to be given due consideration.

Apart from refugee crisis, recently the region has served as a hub for international naval forces fighting piracy in the Red Sea. This connection may provide a good placement for international journalists who may want to raise public awareness on piracy and the plight of soldiers. To get in the country to perform this may require enlisting as a volunteer.

Djibouti is s small state that surrounds a very essential port in the region. The port is currently Ethiopia, South Sudan’s fastest option to the sea. Its proximity to Arabian oil fields also makes it a major interchange for products from the Middle East. The port is constantly being upgraded and expenditure on expansion ranges in billions of dollars. The port is a suitable place for engineers, and other skilled maritime personnel to find work. Conservationists can also find much work of the country’s coast to protect the coral reef, marine life and study the ecosystem.
