Its great to see countries coming together for one purpose and in this case the "Green Wall" to help protect and restore ecosystems in North Africa.

Sid McIntyre-DeLaMelena's curator insight, May 29, 12:32 PM

The Green Wall hopes to restore the environment of the North African area that was destroyed by desertification from overgrazing.

Desertification is one of the many consequences of Human-Environment Interaction that comes mainly from agricultural activity.

Nicole Kearsch's curator insight, October 31, 12:03 AM

I'm glad that something is being done before its too late.  It seems lately that we want to fix things after the damage has been done.  It is also helpful that all the political leaders are on board to do what needs to be done to keep the desertification process from happening.  Although the idea as a whole is huge, I'm impressed by the fact that each country is contributing in their own way.  They are creating a plan that benefits them and works for the green wall project.  Not only does this plan solve the desertification process it can also help with the starving people in the nation.  With the growth of fruit bearing trees coming back into the region it can help begin to feed the nations hungry.

An interactive series of maps show possible new additions to the world’s list of independent nations.

 

This is great way to show examples of devolution and political instability.  Included are 11 potential scenarios where further fragmentation/disintegration might occur or even greater regional integration that would redraw the map.  These case studies include: Somalia, Korea, Azerbaijan, Belgium and the Arabian Gulf Union.

Very interesting and informative piece, I found slide (10) especially intriguing with its discussion on the possibility of China claiming parts of Siberia.
