Independent Africa

Independent Africa 
By Kimmy D. Nelson

 Free Africa
It should be the goal of every state and every nation to become financially independent and free from the control of any other state or nations financial suppression. And free from any dependence to another state or nation. 
By extracting the natural resources and goods from Africa and then having them manufactured for the economic global market to financially benefit Africa for their well being and survival as sovereign states, region or nations will bring them financial securtiy.

Why Save Africa
It is also important to try and help Africa become financially independent as it is to try and help them end the years of hardship due to lack of irrigation and food supply.
It will help restore proper health to the topography of the lands that were processed into desertification.  We are only helping ourselves when we help Africa out of poverty. 
This will also help end the starvation of millions of people on the continent of Africa if we can successfully turn desert lands into fields of cassava that are well irrigated and properly maintained. 
And to plant new fields of sorghum in the South Africa region that will be converted into biofuel to be sold on the global economic market. 
And possibly some of the cassava and some of the sorghum can be used as food and the other portions can be used for biofuel for the global economic market.
Africa Free From Poverty
We will examine how the top agriculture grown and extracted from Africa can be used in other ways besides food such as biofuel and energy for transportation.  We will also look at the possibility to use the desert lands as new grounds to be irrigated and seeded for future cassava which is native to the Congo and Nigeria in the sub-Saharan Africa.
We will take the five themes of Geography and show how they can be used to help to implement these ideas into a realities.  It is important to try and restore the desert waste lands of Africa to prevent future droughts, fires and floods of natural disasters that lands of desertification are prone to.
The first location we will be discussing for possible biofuels and land restoration is in the sub-Saharan Africa in Nigeria is Latitude and Longitude 10.0 and 8.0 where cassava grows easily.  The next location is in South Africa where sorghum can be grown and it's Latitude is -27.636135500000000000 and Longitude 32.582519700000034000. 
This is on the continent of Africa just below the continent of Europe. We will be looking at both of these regions; Nigeria in the sub-Saharan region and South Africa on the bottom part of the continent because Africa's best crops (cassava and sorghum) are found in those two regions.
The sub-Saharan Africa is the area that is in need of land restoration to end the droughts, the fires and floods that are likely to happen in regions of high desertification as this one in Nigeria is. 
The continent of Africa is South of the continent of Europe. It is the worlds second largest continent and the worlds second largest population on a continent with over one billion people living on the continent of Africa.  With over eleven and a half million square miles of land.   It is home to the countries of Nigeria, Egypt, Tanzania, Morocco, Kenya, South Africa and more.
We will be exploring the sub-Saharan region on the lower part of North Eastern Africa.  The region of Nigeria is in the sub-Saharan Desert of Africa where there are desert conditions, barren lands with minimal trees and shrubs and waste land areas for long stretches of miles.
The other place is in South Africa where there are shrubs and trees, other plants and vegetation that grows easily in that climate.  This is a region that has been struck with the terrors of Aids, starvation and in some areas Malaria.  The Congo is another area like Nigeria where cassava grows best and it is also an area of sub-Sahara Africa.
It will be important to know what type of apparel and dress is appropriate for the time of year or season that will be relevant to the traveler and to those who will be bringing in the equipment needed to implement the plans as well as those who will be working on the projects that will be addressed in this presentation.   The two regions are different in climate and temperature all year round.
We will first need to utilize transportation to build roads and map out regions of the lands that are located in the desert regions in the sub-Saharan Africa regions of Nigeria, The Congo and any other regions that they would like to plant new fields of cassava to aid in the land restoration and to aid in the biofuel industry to help Africa become financially independent. 
There will need to be lots road signs that are in the native tongue of the particular regions they will be working on so that the locals can easily read the maps.  They will need to bring the irrigation equipment to the area lands that will be renewed with new cassava plantations. 
They may not need irrigation or new wells in the other region of South Africa where they will be growing the sorghum and where they will be building the biofuel plant for the conversion of the sorghum grain into fuel for distribution into the global economic market.
And they will need transportation to bring in the water that will be used to irrigate the land.  Possibly they can drill for and dig new wells that will help in the irrigation of the lands. 
So they will need to bring in the drilling equipment to dig the new wells too in the sub-Saharan region of Nigeria and The Congo.  And they will also need to bring in all the equipment to build the biofuel plants near by the harvest field to save time and transportation of taking the harvested cassava and sorghum to be converted into biofuel for the global economic market. 
Sorghum is mainly found in South Africa.  They will also need to make sure that there are roads built for bringing in all the equipment needed to plant and harvest the sorghum. 
They will also need roads to bring all the equipment to build the biofuel plants that will convert the sorghum and the cassava into biofuel.  And they will need big fuel trucks to transport the cassava and sorghum biofuels to the global economic market too. 
Though the colonizers brought great benefits to Africa and to the rest of the world it is important for Africa to be self sufficient with all of her own natural resources to ensure that she is not exploited  by other more powerful countries in the world.  It is important for all of the world's nations to be self sufficient and free from poverty.
Much of the Continent of Africa is the Sahara desert.  But there are regions in the sub-Sahara desert region that can be restored into cassava plantations.
 Nigeria, The Congo, Cameroon, The Central African Republic, Ghana and much more of Africa are similar in the climate just South of the Sahara and that is an area that will work well to grow cassava. 
And in another region where sorghum grows well is in South Africa and the regions of Botswana, and Namibia they are all in the same region in the Southern Continent of Africa where sorghum grows well. 

Human Environment Interaction
We can see by the land desertification that the early colonization may have caused some of the land erosion in the areas of the sub-Sahara Africa. 
We also know that the nomads have adapted to the climate changes in Africa as they take their herds from place to place during the different seasons of the harsh climates there.
We see the camels in the Sahara desert regions and we know that they have adapted to the dry vast desert lands in the Sahara desert regions on the continent of Africa especially near Egypt where we have seen the camels in pictures next to the pyramids.
 We also know that in the town of Gabon the Oil industry colonizers of Europe adapted to the climate there when they built the city there in Gabon into what it is today.   
Perhaps they have learned information that will be helpful to build up the biofuel industry with some of Africa's vegetation or by using the sorghum and the cassava.
The city of Gabon will have a lot of vital information that will help to save steps, time and money if and when Africa decides it will become energy independent and a big player in the global economic world of energy and resources as our planet turns to the wisdom of sustainability and eco friendly environments.
