Global Problems Like Climate Change Require Global Responses Like TAP

TAP is the Trans Africa Pipeline, the plan to build a trans-continental water pipeline servicing 30M + living in Sub-Sahara Africa. Details may be seen at www.transafricapipeline.org TAP success will depend upon co-operation of 11 countries; they must work together to plot the route, to secure the perpetual flow of fresh water across national boundaries through remote areas, and to maintain the primary pipeline and its tributaries. TAP offers access to a permanent supply of fresh water thereby challenging drought conditions to save lives, it will enable expanded food production to reduce starvation, and it will encourage the growth of regional economies to employ thousands of Africans. While TAP includes desalination plants to produce the fresh water, harvesting the salt for sale, solar power farms to generate power to pump the water and many associated profitable business opportunities it is not dedicated as a commercial enterprise. TAP will generate reasonable returns on investment, however, as a not for profit organization, the TAP plan is following completion to turn over the business operations to the 11 African countries. The TAP question for you: How does TAP motivate all interested governments, banks, foundations, philanthropists, and persons who may motivate real change, to think BIG on the continental scale, to agree with a common purpose to get TAP built? TAP encourages the 11 African countries of the Pan Africa Great Green Wall, the African Union, the UN agencies, the Green Climate Fund, the Gates Foundation, the Buffett Foundation, the Obama Foundation, the Hilton Foundation, to come together, and think BIG to allow TAP to get this life-saving pipeline built without further delay.
