One of Muhammad Gaddafi's largest companies during his 42-year leadership was the Great Man-Made River. To achieve his goal, he wanted to ensure that everyone had access to potable water, and he wanted to see the Sahara green and flourishing, providing Libya with total food self-sufficiency. Water aquifers beneath the soil were discovered in the southern region of the country during the 1953 oil exploration effort.
Gaddafi laid the groundwork in 1984 and began the project. About 1 300 wells were drilled into the barren ground, some up to 500 meters deep. The underground pipeline network then provided the Libyans with water. The government has supplied everyone willing, free seeds, fertilizers, and agricultural machinery, to begin agriculture.
As soon as all three of the programs had been completed, the struggle against Libya began with the West in 2011. NATO targeted supply lines, particularly CESIPs supplied by manufacturers, as a military storage site in July 2011. The assault had annihilated 80 percent of the population. The current administration repaired it in 2018.
