quote author=LegendVibes post=98038445]French President, Macron Names Adesina Champion Of Africa’s Great Green Wall Initiative

France President Emmanuel Macron has named the African Development Bank President Akinwumi Adesina as a champion of Africa’s Great Green Wall (GGW) initiative, Igbere TV reports.

The appointment was made at a forum held in the margins of the One Planet Summit 2021 to mobilise support for the ambitious project to plant an 8,000 km swathe of trees and other vegetation across the Sahara and Sahel regions of Africa.

The green wall will act as a barrier against desertification and aims to create over 10 million green jobs in the region.

“I would also like to welcome the commitment of Dr. Adesina, President of the African Development Bank, who has agreed to take on the role of resource mobilisation champion and help raise, by 2030, all the necessary funds for the realisation of the Great Green Wall,” Mr Macron told participants.

Adesina said in a tweet on Tuesday that he was honoured by the recognition.

In the role of champion, Adesina will lead the mobilisation of political and economic support for the initiative.

During the forum, Adesina announced that the bank would mobilise up to $6.5 billion over the next 5 years for the Great Green Wall Initiative, joining multilateral development institutions, governments and development partners that have pledged over $14 billion.[/quote]

If d AfDB will execute this initiative itself, them am fine with it. But if it intends sharing d money to d African countries involved (especially nigeria), then there's no hope. They can as well kiss goodbye to their great green wall sturvs

Nonsense.

You'd think the President and northern leaders would take this project seriously seeing as the Sahara desert would encroach the north first causing famine and hunger but they've been mute and slow in building the green wall.

Even Senegal and Ethiopia have planted over 10million trees already while we're still lagging behind.

Chimaokigwe:


Who is Netanyahu, Trump or Putin to give Ipobs Biafra?

Despite the tons of former French colonies in Africa, the French President singled out a product of the one of the former English colonies for this. Instead of you to be happy, that useless spirit of jealousy and hatred no allow you think straight.
May you never be cured of your affliction.

Some Nigerians who are making us proud are there while the ones bringing down the name of the country down are there too. Thanks Sir for being a good example like me.

But you can never see any Fulani man making us proud anywhere in the world.
