employer in Hargeysa with reference to sensitivity of data and information. The team leader also expressed the notion that PRS would not want to draw too much attention to the private security sector in Somaliland in order not to attract potential competitors. Therefore, no information about the current number of employees, planned number of new positions as well as demanded profiles could be obtained. Looking at the private security sector in Kenya and other neighbouring countries, PRS and other private security providers are believed to emerge into an important employer for youth in Somaliland and Puntland. It is therefore recommended to get more information on the profiles required and recruitment procedures. Recreational facilities: A Turkish company built and is operating several football fields (with synthetic turf) in Hargeysa and charges an entry fee for playing. All enumerators confirmed that these are highly popular places for youth to spend their time. Similarly, in Puntland, youth gather to watch each other play football at the two fields. 41 Throughout Hargeysa, a small number of other recreational facilities, such as gyms or entertainment centres with pool tables, can be found. However, there are still very few options for youth to spend their leisure time other than sitting in coffee houses or at home, providing a big potential for innovative recreational facilities such as internet cafes, libraries, cinemas or concert facilities catering to the strong musical and arts culture in Somaliland and Puntland. This area is particularly interesting as, in addition to job creation, it would contribute to a more positive image of Somaliland and Puntland among the youth, diminishing the “soft” reasons to migrate. 40 Physical Risk Solutions (2014), About us . 41 YPEER KII 06.12.14 Garowe (Puntland)

67 IOM Somalia - Research on Youth, Employment and Migration A NNEXES A NNEX I P ROFILES OF SURVEYED EMPLOYERS AND ORGANISATIONS Enumerators randomly interviewed a wide range of public and private sector employers so as to: a) Form a complete picture of the employment requirements in both the public and private sectors in each city (Bossasso, Garowe, Burao, and Hargeysa); b) Identify growth sectors – where should youth be focusing their preparatory work in getting ready to join the job market. If we focus on the profile of the respondents, on average, surveyed employers were 37 year old and 80% of them were male. Owners in Somaliland were more likely to have taken over a family business than those in Puntland, and the main reasons cited by Somaliland owners were the expectation of better working conditions and opportunities, while owners in Puntland cited opportunities far more often than conditions:

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
