    Awdal (Somali: Awdal, Arabic: أودال‎) is a region (gobol) in northwestern Somalia.[1] Its capital is Borama.

    Awdal is bordered by [2]

    Control of the region is disputed between Awdalland, a proposed autonomous state, and Somaliland, a self-declared independent republic that is internationally recognized as an autonomous region of Somalia.


    Awdal Overview


    Awdal (also spelled Adal or Adel) takes its name from a medieval empire, the Adal Sultanate, whose power rose in the 16th century. The area along the Ethiopian border is abundant with ruined cities, which were described by the British explorer Richard F. Burton.[3]

    A modern separatist movement, known as the Awdal Republic,[4] sought independence in 1995 after the establishment of Somaliland. A Dir-dominated movement in Awdal province also threatens to form its own administration if the secessionist Somaliland region's self-declared independence is officially recognized.[5]


    Awdal Demographics


    Awdal is primarily inhabited by people from the Somali ethnic group, with the Gadabuursi especially well represented.[6][7][8]
