Global Climate Change, Human Security & Democracy project, Orfalea Center, Santa Barbara
The “Climate project” is a four-year project of the Orfalea Center for Global & International Studies that focuses on the political fallout that can be anticipated as a result of climate change and the many dangerous developments that can be expected to occur in the decades ahead including severe drought, coastal flooding, polar melting, ocean acidification, and increased rivalry over scarce resources of arable land and fresh water.
The project considers climate change and ecological balance from the perspective of democracy and human rights, and more broadly, human security.

An article by Moulay Hicham in the French publication 'Pouvoirs'
Morocco five years from now, in the aftermath of the “Cumin Revolution” : through such a projection and without any recourse to political fiction,the article draws an a posteriori balance sheet of the current stalemate by looking at the solutions proposed. Such a reversal of perspective makes it possible to raise old questions, left unanswered, in a new form. In this light, the “new Morocco” seems like a pipe dream, the confinement of the country into a waiting room following the current wait-and-see policy, a real utopia. Yet, the other Morocco – a country where life would be easy and pleasant – is within reach.
