The Green Corridor of Africa

For an environmentally, social and economic sustainable development




The Green Corridor of Africa is a vision thought out by the Danish company DanSense for creating a green corridor in the Northern parts of Africa based on sustainable development with respects for the UN global goals. The countries invited initially to the project are Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Mauritania, and Tunisia.

As a future collaboration between countries, the project aims at stopping further desertification, creating 1,2 million km 2 permanent forest and agricultural areas, creating completely new commercial products based on existing resources, producing sustainable and renewable energy, constructing new sustainable infrastructure cross countries, and whilst doing all of this, at the same time increasing health and prosperity in the region, creating millions of jobs throughout the overall project, and increasing possibilities substantially for own production of food nationally for all.

Focusing the primary environmental and climate challenges, the Green Corridor project will address and combat these major challenges together each national government with the concepts of Circular Economy and Industrial Symbiosis as basis for ensuring a clean and sustainable future and living for all participating countries.


Initial pilot projects

The strategic approach to a project this size is due diligence. By carefully developing and studying a series of pilot projects, and documenting the best and most sustainable way forward before initiating the full-scale project, money is saved, respect for local needs are incorporated and the best possible social, environmental and economic way of progressing is found.

Pilot project Number 1

The aim of this project is in a relatively large scale to study biomass production based on wastewater otherwise let to recipients. If successful it can open for a completely new narrative on wastewater treatment in warm countries, and create the needed resources for reforestation of the region as well as creating new agricultural crops without the health risks that origin from direct use of sewage for watering of plants and food, or even for process purposes like e.g., recreational or sporting sites.

Location of first pilot: To be decided soon.

Pilot project number 2

Finding the right level of producing renewable energy also require considerations on storage of the energy when not needed, or for supplying when it is not possible to produce energy.

Looking at future increased need of energy as well as on out-phasing energy produced on fossil fuels shortly, now is the time to start developing an infrastructure solely based on sustainable energy. Related to the overall project of the GCA this presents several other and sustainable solutions in a life cycle perspective, ensuring energy 24/7 domestically as well as cross countries, providing new resources for reforestation and agricultural purposes, and at the same time complying with several of the UN global goals.

Location of second pilot: Not decided yet.

Pilot project number 3

Based on results from the first pilot on biomass production, the project on reforestation will be initiated as specific agricultural supported projects in selected areas withing the area selected for the overall GCA project. Small farms on maybe up to 10 hectares will be supported in creating 70-80 percent permanent and partially untouched forest, and 20-30 use for agricultural purposes for growing food.

Pilot project number 4

Transport of goods and persons will later in the project be needed, as well as cross-countries connections ensuring increased exports and imports.

The infrastructure project connect people in more than one way, because of the several possibilities in a cross-countries railway connection.
