Senegal Successfully Greens The Desert!

The UN Finally Decides To Help Sahelian Nations Green The Sahara After Seeing Their Success years later! But better late than never!

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 UN suggests that true economic empowerment of the region should prioritize green energy. "Sustainable energy could regenerate Africa’s Sahelian zone by using the region’s abundant clean energy potential to transform lives, diversify economies, give hope, and protect the planet. Analyzing viable pathways to move the Sahel away from energy dependency to energy agency that delivers accessible, reliable, and affordable energy for all, is the focus of the UN Human Development Report, which covered Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, The Gambia, Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, and Senegal if these nations united for the common goal it would create a foundation for sustainable food and energy resilience."

the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), is planned with the theme “Securing (Controlling) Africa’s Economic Future Amidst Rising Uncertainty”. It will be held at in Gaborone, Botswana, from 23-25 November 2024. African economies are characterized by weak, inherited left over and outdated colonial structures, and poor leadership that refuses to dump the policies and restrictions imposed by the colonizers decades ago to stop African self reliance. And, to a large extent, economic performance in many of the countries in the region is determined by exogenous (Foreign) forces and natural phenomena, such as weather, over which they refuse to implement safeguards like irrigation control.

Also, while African economies are open, and most would say excessively open creating a state of hardship for their own people to compete in the marketplace so their economies stay perpetually fragile, the African nations are mocked and fingers point saying they lack the intellectual capacity to cope with shocks and impulses transmitted from an increasingly (by design)unfavorable international economic environment. The book/Memoir, Diary of An Economic Hitman explains in detail how this is accomplished,

In the last decade, a wind of economic change has been blowing through Africa. This is reflected in the increasing acceptance by the region of the need for major economic policy reforms, with as many as 40 African countries currently implementing structural adjustment programs. Collectively, African countries have also shown their commitment to change by adopting, strategies to build infrastructure rather than rely on foreign aid which cripples industry. The primary aim of which is to eliminate the fundamental weaknesses in the African economies caused by lack of self reliance and to restore them to the path of rapid and self-sustaining growth and development through intra African trade and unity.
