The fact that it is a desert area, Djibouti has an extremely hot climate. It is often at the receiving end of droughts, earthquakes and cyclones.
Djibouti is one of the poorest nations of the world. There is acute food shortage in most of the places due to lack of absence of crops and thus no agriculture.
