The third Sahara Scientists Summit took place on the 27th and the 28th of September in Dakhla, Morocco. The event was organised by the Chamber of Agriculture of Dakhla and the Hungarian Trade and Cultural Center. Altogether 50 scientists and 200 other professionals participated in the event dedicated to the negative effects of climate change on agriculture.
In the past three years, the Hungarian Trade and Cultural Center (HTCC) has met five times with the chairman of the Chamber of Agriculture of Dakhla to discuss agricultural issues, water management and cooperation on climate protection. Their most recent meeting took place in Dakhla, during the 3rd Sahara Scientists Summit in Dakhla.
According to the HTCC’s press release, four continents were represented at the event, though the main subject of focus was the Hungarian delegation: the six members of the Hungarian delegation not only helped to organise the event but brought with themselves numerous professional novelties and a well-equipped booth.
The opening speeches given by the region’s political leaders and Nobel Laureate Nguyen Hu Ninh, were followed by presentations by scientists from Morocco and from all over the world. The highlight of the summit was the discussion of the Green Sahara Project – 25 thousand hectares from the desert will be cultivated, turned green. Counting family members too, 125 thousand people will be employed in the project.
The Hungarian scientists presented an artificial rain machine, that will protect the fossilised water underneath the Sahara by employing the Indian rain modifying laser technology and the Canadian condensation technology, all the while making sure that the symbiotic fauna gets enough water.
Thanks to another Hungarian innovation in agro technology, with only half amount of water and three-fold crop rotation, the size of harvests can be increased significantly in the case of wheat and forage.
If you take a piece of land and plant 60% of it with Paulownia and other C4 fauna, then water it by applying the open-air CO2 watering technique, you can manure 500 tons of CO2 each year. This can change the current situation of CO2 on a global scale.
The artificial rain technology, innovative agriculture and the introduction of a new CO2 world order could accelerate the process of the Green Morocco Plan and the building of the Great Green Wall. It is not only beneficial for Africa’s progress but can help tackle the negative effects of climate change.
