What does BOH mean?

Boh
Boh is one of the woredas in the Somali Region of Ethiopia. Part of the Werder Zone, Boh is located in the easternmost part of the country, at the point of the angle jutting into Somalia; on its other sides, this woreda is bordered on the southwest by Geladin, and on the northwest by Danot. The easternmost point of this woreda is the easternmost point of Ethiopia. Towns in Boh include Boh, Dimeriad, and Marqaan Wayn. Before 1960, there was little water available during the dry season in Boh; although the Geladi wells and other shallow wells in their vicinity were used, they did not always yield sufficient water in the dry season to serve as a reliable permanent water source. So the pastures in the woreda were traditionally abandoned by the local nomadic pastoralists for areas with abundant water with the advent of the dry season, like the wells of Werder, and Galkacyo, Las Anod or Garowe across the border in Somalia. Water points in the area increased when the Boh borehole was drilled in 1963 followed by Docmo and Dogob boreholes in the 1970s. Another development in the 1970s was the construction of private birkas. By 1998, there were 65 villages with birkas in Geladin woreda, but the number of birkas in each village varies widely. The building of birkas has also been stimulated with the arrival of refugees fleeing Somalia since 1988. While this allowed the area that was previously grazed mainly in the wet season to now be grazed throughout the dry season, it has also led to a serious decline in the native species of plants most favored for fodder and grazing in this woreda.
