About the event

In this webinar, the WE4F (Water & Energy for Food) MENA Regional Innovation Hub sheds light on the practicalities of supporting innovations designed to use less water and more efficient energy resources to increase and optimize food production in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Four change-makers and business leaders from the region will present their solutions and will then engage in a discussion with each other and the webinar participants about the requirements for a flourishing enabling environment that aims to make food security a reality for all segments of society. The webinar presents an exciting outlook into how home-grown regional solutions and green investment can contribute to a more sustainable planet.

This webinar is implemented under the regional SIDA funded project “Implementing the 2030 Agenda for water efficiency/productivity and water sustainability in NENA countries”, in collaboration with WE4F MENA and FAO’s Regional Innovation Flagship.
