IOFS – HBKU Webinar: “Mobilizing Finance for Sustainable Agriculture and Agriculture Productivity”
09 February 2024

Join us for the next chapter in our webinar series – "Food Security and Sustainable Development" by the Islamic Organization for Food Security in collaboration with Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU).

Our upcoming webinar on 26 February 2024, 12:00 PM Doha Time, delves into "Mobilizing Finance for Sustainable Agriculture and Agriculture Productivity."

Agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, escalating deforestation rates, heightened climate change susceptibility, and habitat loss present formidable challenges to agri-food systems worldwide. These risks not only imperil food security but also cast a shadow on financial stability. Amidst these pressing concerns, key stakeholders in the agricultural food system confront the task of financing a sustainable transformation towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.

Moderated by Dr. Dala Aassouli from HBKU, our experts will discuss the landscape of sustainable agriculture finance, the enabling ecosystem, and the potential of Islamic finance in achieving food security.

Our esteemed panelists will include:

- Dr. Sabine Laurent, Market Intelligence Transition Lead from Climate Bonds Initiative
- Mr. Corne de Louw, Program Director Advisory Services at Rabo Partnerships
- Dr. Harun Celik, Sr. Expert Trade Solution Complex, Islamic Trade Finance Corporation (ITFC) - IsDB Group

- Mr. Azamat Khamiyev, Program Manager on National Food Sector Development, IOFS
