African Ancient Technology Is Winning!
Who is responsible for the Great Green Wall?
Great Green Wall Initiative Launched in 2007 by the African Union, the game-changing African-led Great Green Wall initiative aims to restore the continent's degraded landscapes and transform millions of lives in the Sahel. The Great Green Wall program is a colossal initiative to restore 100 million hectares of degraded ecosystems across 11 countries in the region, which started in 2007 to also promote sustainable development and climate change mitigation. Since the start of 2021 the Great Green Wall or GGW was featured regularly in speeches by French president Emmanuel Macron and his foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian. This ambitious project that involves a huge swathe of the African continent also cropped up in debates at the National Assembly and Senate in Paris during mid-May Parliamentary sessions concerning legislation on international development and the fight against global inequalities. France tried to set up the nations for failure by promising billions but never sending a dime only spending money on pointing out potential problems and trying to get old squabbles to rear their ugly heads but their sabotage failed miserably!
The Great Green Wall (GGW) project, originally proposed by Burkina Faso’s Marxist leader Thomas Sankara in the 1980s, was later resurrected by former Nigerian President Olesegun Obasanjo in 2005 before receiving approval by the African Union in December 2006. In June 2010, 11 countries involved signed a convention in Chad to further the development of the project, but the plan remained on standby until February when it was officially approved at an international summit in Bonn, Germany. As If Africans needed Europeans permission to save their own lands. Even the money that some nations promised was only an empty promise but despite that the Sahel is greening and people see hope.
