As Morocco's economy grows, it needs more and more energy - some ten percent more each year. A new wind farm outside Tangier is now one of the country's biggest and most promising energy providers. Morocco still has to import most of its energy resources. But that is set to change. Wind farms like the 140-megawatt Tanger outside Tangier are producing an ever growing share. The skills and technology are key to further development.

Many people in Senegal depend on agriculture and aquaculture to make a living - with most of those involved working illegally. The country's economy has suffered from both chronic mismanagement and the effects of extreme weather - meaning hunger is a major concern for the population. People living along the Casamance River depend on rice production and logging for their livelihood. Now, one initiative is looking to help women earn a living via oyster farming - and protect the mangrove forest. With the help of a small loan, the project's leader Seynabou Diatta is pursuing an environmentally friendly way to harvest oysters.
