PLAN B A Great Green Wall to stop the desert

 PLAN B A Great Green Wall to stop the desert This ambitious project was launched in 2007 under the aegis of the African Union to slow desertification and restore Sahelian ecosystems. In Africa, the Sahara is moving inexorably. Successive droughts since the 1960s in the Sahelian zone, deforestation and overgrazing are the main causes. In 2007, the African Union decided to stop this advance thanks to the Great Green Wall, a project which aims to restore the Sahelian ecosystems threatened by desertification.

In his speech to the nation Monday evening, President Macky Sall announced the reopening of air borders from July 15. The Senegalese sky has been closed since mid-March as part of the fight against the coronavirus. But there will be conditions: the head of state said that "international flights will resume according to a defined health protocol". And reopening will also and above all depend on whether or not the borders are opened in the destination countries.

To leave Senegal by plane, the Ministry of Air Transport presented a health protocol. Main measures: keep your distance from the airport, and wear a mask until you arrive at your destination.

To enter Senegal this time, a Covid-19 screening test is currently compulsory and free at the airport. "A measure that may change at any time," said a source familiar with the matter. A passenger with a negative test performed less than 7 days before flying will not be screened. Each passenger will have to fill out a form to retrace their route.

Another - more diplomatic - aspect of this resumption of air traffic: the reopening or not of the borders of third States. The ECOWAS recommended an opening between member states by July 15 at the latest. But the European Union is only reopening its borders to 15 countries immediately. In Africa, 4 are on the list: Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia and Rwanda. Senegal is therefore not mentioned, for the moment in any case.

For the time being, the only international flights operating to and from Senegal are so-called "repatriation" flights, one way, for Senegalese nationals stranded outside, or foreign citizens stranded in the country.

Domestic flights have resumed since June 15. Land and sea borders, however, remain closed until further notice. To date, Senegal has recorded 112 deaths linked to the coronavirus, 6793 confirmed cases, including 2249 under treatment.
