The United States of Africa is a project that has been raising issues for decades. Indeed, many international actors, activists groups, countries and other companies are concerned about the unity of an African people formed as a strong and powerful continent. It is true that many key topics are addressed by this union at an International level but also at a regional one. Geopolitics, Economy, Health, Finance, Military, Raw material and many others are deeply concerned and will consequently deeply mutate from this new organization. Regarding the interests of the different actors that play a part in Africa, opinions are shared. Some sees it as a threat and others as a huge opportunity. Not only has the new world order that could generate the creation of such a powerful organization animated us to realize this investigation, but also another aspect. We did not understand why an organization which is so full of opportunities for the African people is not already created and organized. Africa is one of the biggest continents with almost 30,000,000 square kilometers of territory (it is as large as the USA, Europe, India and China altogether).

[...] Geographical barriers: The geography of the United States of Africa will be wildly diverse. It will comprise 53 sovereign states which are covering the entire African continent and several off-shore islands. It will include huge jungles, the world's largest hot desert (Sahara) and the world's longest river (Nile). The climate of Africa is generally uniform. Scientists have distinguished seven main African climatic zones all over the continent.

[...] The hatred caused by wars you geometrical borders by colonial forces. These wars, as they are inflated and justify the military budget, but injure the little people. The freedoms have found too often yielded to the wishes pseudo-socialist policies. If today some are determined to steer their country towards a market economy, the task remains difficult.
