A New Framework of Economic Development in African Countries - PART IV MILLENNIUM REGIONS OF ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL EXCELLENCE – WMR

Normally, an economy being factor-driven needs many decades to embark onthe next stage of development becoming „efficiency-driven”, based on

  • Higher education and training
  • Goods market efficiency
  • Labor market efficiency
  • Financial market development
  • Technological readiness
  • Market size
The Millenium Village Project could prove that it is possible to enhance and tospeed up the process of development in the poorest African Countries within avery short time period and with astoundingly positive results at relatively locost. WUSME’s approach taking up the success of the MVP goes on step fartherby integrating Millennuim Villages into

MILLENNIUM REGIONSAS SUPPLEMENTARY SERIES BY REGIONS OF ECONOMIC, SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL EXCELLENCE.

3. Energy Supply

The WMR shall use the following renewable sources for generating energy, particularly electricity:

  • Hydro Water Power Plants
  • Biomass Power Plants
  • Solar energy, e.g. Photovoltaic
  • Wind Parks
  • Energy from organic waste
4. Waste Management

The WMR shall apply a waste management and waste treatment system based on recycling and production ofenergy, particularly of electricity. For hazardous waste werecommend to make use of the Gas Plasma Technology. Forpolluted plastic waste and old car tires we propose toimplement thermo-catalytic treatment (low temperatureconversion).

5. Telecommunication

Building wireless infrastructure across Sub Saharan Africa.Today, telecoms and IT are bringing economic, social and political benefits to Africa and its people, but with the explosion in communication technology comes an ever-increasing demand for wireless infrastructure across the continent.
