The speech made by King Mohammed VI in Brazzaville illustrates the Kingdom of Morocco’s commitment to the great causes of development in the African continent. He does this this time through ecology. A cross-cutting approach to boost multiple sectors, generate jobs and protect Africa’s wealth.
After signing his triumphant return to his African family, Morocco has established itself through the Brazzaville speech as a driving force for its development and a standard bearer of its concerns.
Who other than Morocco, a link between Europe and Africa, organizer of the COP 22 and the African climate summit from which the major projects debated in Brazzaville started, could be the bearer as much relevance and realism of the great environmental anxieties that the African continent encounters?
In its long-announced approach, Mohammed VI had made the ecological concern a political vision to raise awareness and mobilize energies, with a twofold objective to create a dynamic to revive the economies of the African countries concerned and raise a trail of protection of its wealth and its ecological heritage around which water plays a primordial and structuring role, become, according to the expression of the sovereign “rare commodity, the object of many greeds. ”
Before considering such a dynamic, Mohammed VI makes this alarming statement to shake people’s conscience: “If we do not act, in the years to come, climate change will lead to land degradation and a scarcity of water resources. The 25,000 km² of waterways are at risk of silting up and pollution. These immense challenges awaiting African leaders deserve a historic commitment to the dangers that threaten the “second lung” of the world. It is here and now that the future of this vital heritage is taking shape, announcing with gravity the Moroccan sovereign.
To his African audience, Mohammed VI has a unique African ambition in its continental dimension. He is one of the few heads of state to be able to embody him with certain aura and credibility. The diagnosis made, the projects envisaged, with obligations of result, join an unshakeable will to “implement concrete initiatives, likely to preserve the rights of future generations. ”
The participation of Mohammed VI and his speech in Brazzaville were an opportunity to underline the extent to which Morocco is engaged in the long and difficult process of structural changes in the African economy so that its citizens can derive immediate benefits and that their children can be reassured about their futures and act on their temptations to immigrate to other heavens considered more lenient. The royal statement is clear: “In our construction of the Africa of tomorrow, the preservation of the environment, is the basis of the co-emergence of Africa, the foundation on which will be built the inclusive economic growth of the continent. “.
The African commitment of Mohammed VI, in its ecological version, has come to remind the African opinions, the extent of the leadership that Morocco is taking in this crucial battle for the continent, its population and its economies. When the commentators evoke the African tropism of Moroccan diplomacy, it is by no means a passing fad or a cyclical fad. It is, according to the vision of Mohammed VI, a base of convictions intended to seal the destiny of all the components of the continent.
This realistic and conscious approach will be of great benefit to Morocco. He settled in the hearts of Africans as a driving force of a better well-being, generating saving economic projects and jealously protecting his heritage. Where others, motivated by dark agendas, sow discord and chaos, Morocco works for the common interest, the economic boom for all, defense, promotion and development of common goods.
To bring this ecological conviction to its end, Mohammed VI, the African has a love and a sincere African passion. At each summit, he transmits his passionate passion to other heads of state enjoining them to live up to the great challenges and existential threats that weigh on the continent with this intonation that speaks to both hearts and intelligence : “Not only will we meet all the challenges, but we will also demonstrate that countries united by the same dream, the same vision, know how to act and transcend for the emergence of a unified continent, proud of its identities and his roots, walking towards progress. ”
