Britain is hosting an international conference on Somalia on Thursday bringing together representatives of more than 50 governments and international organisations.
The aim is to strengthen the political process in the war-torn country and find ways of combating the problems of terrorism and piracy.
Yusuf Garaad, from the BBC's Somali Service, has been speaking to the British prime minister, David Cameron, about what he hopes will be achieved at the London conference.
