Genesis Morocco

Project Genesis is a strategic sustainable development framework for Morocco to translate from being a net importer of energy and a country facing water shortage issues, into the number one producer both of clean renewable energy and water in the region.

A Peak into the Next Millennia

Automated production lines are definitely the way to go for the massive production of SunCatcher units (best technology on the market) as project Genesis envisions, the figure is at half a million units, but of course we can produce one or even two million units.

We can use the large swaths of non arable land to house theses giant solar farms, and see to it that the production be compatible with a micro irrigation scheme, so as to regain non arable land.

With that amount of energy produced, desalinating water is not an issue any more as production costs are brought to a minima, allowing for a real "greening the desert" strategy, where water desalinated from the shore then pumped into water pipelines to the inner land.

There we should see the emergence first of an Oasis system for advanced colonies, situated at the end of the pipeline's terminations, then a more dense tissue of population along the pipeline itself.

Theses communities would operate within the ecosystem of the oasis which is also an energy and agricultural production unit. We can also think of eco-tourism.

Undoubtedly this new found prosperity in our Southern provinces will attract migrant settlers from neighbouring countries, they should be dealt with with an open mind, as Morocco has never been stronger then when backed by a prosperous south as its history attests.

It calls for a real reflection in diverse domains such as architecture and sociology, but I believe, and it is the constant belief behind project Genesis, that deserts are the last frontier, and that sustainably colonized, they provide an answer for the human symbiosis with the diverse ecosystems of the planet in the next millennia.

In any case, it is a true laboratory for terraforming and the experience would be invaluable to future generations should the opportunity present itself for the colonization of other planets. But perhaps I am preceding the events quite a bit, still my hope is that if our generation saves the planet we will in time acquire such efficiencies in design, energy generation and conservation that travel to other exoplanets might become possible and sustainable.

Then whole automated production lines might be dispatched to distant systems for the immediate production of energy generation units that will help in water production, micro-irrigation and unit sustainability.
